Shaun the Sheep…Baaaa!

Well its time again for the monthly birthday cake for my husband’s work.  Since May is his [and mine too] birthday month, we brainstormed for a fun idea he’d like.  We came up with Shaun the Sheep ~ based on a tv show our whole family loves.  I have to say my favorite side is the stacked up sheep. 🙂  What was most fun was drawing their pupils.  Its amazing how the placement of these black dots can completely change the expression of a figure. 🙂

Tower of sheep!  I love the middle bottom one with his crossed eyes. 🙂


Timmy flying away with balloons…


And of course, Shaun!  I would have loved to make a stand up figure of him, but
we thought of the idea at the last minute and its been a busy week!

Winter Lamb

Posted by on Dec 19, 2008 in Baby, Birthday, Gumpaste Figures & Flowers, Kid Themed, My Cakes

This was a 1st birthday cake – winter themed.  The lamb was requested because the little girls nick name involves the word Lamb 🙂  I had so much fun sculpting these little lambs out of fondant.   All I could think about as I made them was that saying “Mares eat oats and does eat oats, but little lambs eat ivy.  A kid’ll eat ivy too, wouldn’t you?”  When I was a kid we went camping in northern WI (Hayward) and they had a few animals at the camp ground – one of them a lamb called Lambsydivy (not sure how they spelled it though!)…  Lambsydivy = lambs eat ivy 😉   For some reason I’ve never forgotten about that lamb.

But enough about my lamb filled childhood 🙂  – we need the rest of the cake details!  There are 2 cakes, sizes 8″ and 10″.  Both pink butter cream icing with royal icing snowflakes I piped out, then painted with a pearl luster dust when dry. Below the cake pics are a few close ups of one of the lambs.
