OK, you gamers out there- finally a cake you might be interested in! Austin loves his xbox. Like… LOVES it! Well, he is 13 turning 14…and quite frankly, I know some fully grown men who- like…LOVE it! (Maybe even more than when they were 14…no wait, it wasn’t even INVENTED then, hee hee.)
But, just an xbox won’t do for this occasion. There are going to be at least 80 people hanging around THIS shindig (wooowhoo Austin!) so, the design had to be MUCH bigger.
DO NOT judge my sketch here. Usually, I just draw one up quickly (usually for my eyes only) to reference along the way. I have yet to graduate to the class of professionals that provide a computerized rendering of what the final result will look like. I apsire…but I lack. So, in the meantime, NO LAUGHING. (Though honestly, I laugh every time I look at it, so if you must, just do it quietly. 🙂 )
The end cake may or may not end up looking anything like my sketch…I’m going to go ahead and just pass that off as my “artsiness” coming out while I’m putting it together- and we’ll leave it at that. (Just a little note on these candles- I first saw them done by Andrea “Sweetcakes” Sullivan… love her stuff! Since I’ve been using her design for quite a while, I thought it time I add my own little twist- hence the wax dripping down the sides. Hopefully, that is recognizable, and doesn’t just look like sneezed while making them. )
SOOO, this is just to give you an IDEA of what’s to come- just a little sneak peak. I can not be held liable for anything that may happen along the way. But I will say, what’s in my head is way better than what’s on the paper, so I guess we’ll see how it goes… see you soon Austin and Dena!!
You boys recognize this mug? Does it haunt your dreams? (Ok, that may be a little dramatic, but I bet I’m not too far off…)
