After my last cake, I took a much needed "break" from baking. I love it, don't get me wrong, but my life got a little crazy. My baby girl is becoming more and more active. I had to strategically bake while she was napping and/or stay up all night while everyone else in my house slept. I always get my best work done in the peace and quiet. Also, we run a real estate investment business on the side, so that keeps me busy as well.
Anyway, my next cake was for my son's 7th birthday. He loves the PBS show "Wild Kratts"and wanted a themed party to go along with the show. I had to get creative on this one. So I went with Animal print tiers and a "creature power disc" as a topper. I think it turned out pretty well.
