Somehow, in spite of my urging him to stay small a little longer, L turned 7 this past weekend.
At his request, I made him a Pikachu cake.
It was far from perfect, but he said it was awesome. I baked two round cakes and froze them, which makes them easier to slice. I used one to make the face, and sliced the ears out of the other. The facial features were done with frosting, although I suppose I could have used fruit roll ups and M&Ms for the same effect.
One of these days I'm going to take a cake decorating class.
