One Spoiled Nephew

Yep, I'm talking about my nephew Austin who turned 12 this year. Where has the time gone? And that also just means that I'm getting old..ugh!!

I made two cakes this year for Austin's birthday - one for a party in Iowa with our extended family and one for a birthday party here in Kansas. He picked out the themes for both cakes, and got his way even though I put up a fight.

Boston Celtics Cake done for the Iowa party - Chocolate cake, buttercream filling and covered in fondant.

For the birthday party here in Kansas, he chose a Kansas Jayhawks theme. This cake was supposed to be a 3-tiered topsy turvy cake but....well...I had a fight with this cake and the cake won. I had to tweek my plans for the cake a little bit..and after dealing with one upset Nephew, this is what it ended up to be. All chocolate cake (can you tell that is the only cake he likes??), filled with buttercream and covered in fondant.

And one last picture of the birthday boy with his KU cake! I love you Austin Jay!!
