It’s Finally Here!


Poor Malachi has been eagerly awaiting his birthday ever since July, when he was the only one that didn’t get a birthday (Liam and Ewan are 2 days apart).  Well, it finally got here, as of Friday he is officially 4 years old - a big boy!  

He’s been saying for weeks that he wanted a 
mouse cake” - whatever that is!  I have made a roadkill possum cake

so I figured it was certainly possible to pull off a mouse, but was at a bit of a loss as to how to make it not look like a rat!  Or dead...  So, I googled pictures of “mouse cake” and mostly got Minnie Mouse, but did find one that looked like it would work.  I asked what kind of mouse cake he wanted it to be - carrot, chocolate, red velvet (like my birthday cake last week), and he said “blue velvet!”  And then inspiration hit!  It all fell into place, and thank goodness, this was about 1 pm before the 6:30 pm party :). So, without further ado, here are some pictures of Malachi’s Blue-Cheese-Cake mouse cake!

It turned out really well, I didn’t even overcook the cheesecake like I usually do!  It almost looks like it has a glaze of some sort, but it was just a cheesecake with some of the batter colored blue and swirled in before baking.  Malachi was quite pleased, which is the whole point, isn’t it?  Whew - my creative-cake brain cells can take a break until July again....



so glad for the pictures!

YOur creativity, and the challenge of a little boy needing to become 4 has brought a lot of smiles to our house.. Happy birthday, Malachi!
