Clowning Around

Pin It!

In my next post, I’ll write all about my fun-filled Fourth of July. But for now, all I can give you is cake. I hope you don’t mind!

Another party; another cake. Sadly, I didn’t get to go to this party… but I still had fun making the cake! Knowing how much I love to decorate cakes (it’s no secret!), my friend’s mom asked if she could hire me to make a cake for her son’s birthday.

“You definitely do not have to pay me,” I told her. “In fact, I should pay you, because I have so much fun decorating cakes!” (In the end, she did insist on paying me, but I wouldn’t take as much as she originally offered.)

My friend’s brother, who is three, is OBSESSED with clowns. So naturally, I stuck a fondant clown on his birthday cake. My friend told me that it was the first thing he picked off and ate. (Kinda reminds me of when I was little and always wanted to eat the roses on the cakes. Did anyone else ever do this?)

    Your little clown is adorable! If more real-life clowns looked that sweet, there would be a lot less coulrophobia going around 😉

    So cute! I totally would have gone for the clown first too! And I did the same thing when I was little…whichever part had the most frosting/sugar was mine!

  6. Katy says:

    What a cute cake! What a lucky little boy! You have mad cake decorating skills! 🙂

  7. Ricki says:

    Gorgeous cake, as usual! I love all the little zigzags around the clown. And of course I also asked for the roses on my piece (I usually wanted a corner slice, so I’d get BOTH the roses AND the extra piping around 2 sides of the slice!).

    Oh fun!!!

  9. shellyfish says:

    Oh so so cute! I would love to just eat him right up!
    ooohhh the frosting roses…I used to just eat those suckers and forget the cake! Once, I ate so many at a very posh wedding we went to when I was about 6, that I actually threw up (luckily in the bathroom)! My mom was so embarassed! 🙂 Oops…

    Just so you know, I don’t odo that any more!

  12. Paulina says:

  14. lighterportions says:

    LOVE the clown, it is too adorable! And I like how bright and fun you made the cake.

    That Moosewood cake sounds great. Gonna have to give that a try next time a cake is needed!

  15. Vegetation says:

    Awesome looking cake! And yeah, I was always the one picking off the flowers or anything else that was on the cake…used to get me in trouble sometimes, I couldn’t help myself!

  19. CeciLiA says:

    I love the clown on your cake… Just wondering do you have all those cake decorating materials at hand?!

    Soo talented!! I can never make something out of a piece of fondant!!

    Have a great weekend!!

    I always eat the decorations off a cake – I am notorious for it! My brother used to get so mad when we were kids because I’d pout unless I got the rose! This is so sweet looking and colorful. My inner three year old loves it. I am normally petrified of clowns but yours is adorable.
