    So, for those who read my mood board challenge, I combined it with the mood/thinking board to help me figure out how to create a birthday cake for my son's 17th birthday. Here are my mood board & page from the challenge, then 'the cake' I created for his birthday. :) GennieJoy MOC 6 #3a.jpg GennieJoy MOC 6 #3b.jpg DSCN9992.jpg DSCN0005.jpg yesterday! HE LOVED it! SO happy! I'm not a cook or a baker, I just try to do one special birthday cake for each of my boys every year. I've never done anything like this one before. :)

    That cake is amazing!! You will need to make a companion page with the cake to go with your challenge page. Very cool!

    That's incredible ... hats off to you mama! I'm so glad you did come back and share that cake/new page with us. I don't think I could do that if I tried for a week at it! Now I'm curious what your other one is going to ask for! This one is going to be hard to beat! :giggle

    very cool! glad you pulled it off and he looks justifiably thrilled! i made a tardis cake topper for A's last year (she scourers pinterest more than me at b'day time!); then there was too much drama around B's b'day after xmas and he didnt ask for anything special apart from donuts, so that's what he got, otherwise it sounds like our baking/ b'day kid pleasing is similar! (looks like you've been doing it a few years longer than me though! When i was a kid my Mum's go-to was a clock face that the hands changed where they were pointing, until we got to 12y.o. and then it was like 'Street's Viennetta or icecream cake anyone?!"
