This is the second year I have participated in the Macy's Candy Windows tradition. This year the theme was Christmas Traditions and the first thing that came to mind was this. I remember watching this movie over and over again. A funny discussion came up because of this. I was designing Bumble and my sister said he used to scare her. I told her he was only mean because he had a toothache and once they pulled out his teeth, he was nice again. My other sister told me I was wrong, that they pulled his teeth out so he couldn't eat them. So we went back and watched that part and she was right! It must have scared me as a child too and so I just made up a story in my head that made him seem less scary. Funny thing is, after our internet search, I found that I was not the only one who came up with that same scenario. It is actually quite a common misconception. Funny how our brains work!

This was for my Nate. I have been doing birthday cakes for Nate since he was a tiny kid. He would always come up with new things for me to try. One year her wanted red velvet with cream cheese and strawberry filling. So I did that. The middle layer of his wedding cake was that flavor. This time with it being fall, he asked if I could do a pumpkin chocolate chip cake. I had never done that before either, but why not? It is now my new favorite! The top layer was a gluten-free chocolate. Half of the flowers are hand painted and half are fondant. Great concept for such a great couple.
Not only did I enjoy doing this cake for the cutest boy ever because he is Alan's cousin's son, but Curious George was also my sister's favorite! She carried around a stuffed animal with her everywhere when she was a tiny kid. One of my favorite memories. Happy Birthday Grayson!
I always love doing cakes for this family. They are usually simple and sweet and sometimes those are my very favorite. This one is pink French vanilla with sprinkles on the inside. Not to mention, simple and sweet is exactly what this family is. Thanks for including me in your celebration again!
