Is this art?

 Today Mandi is twelve years old.


 For the last month she was planning this cake. She thinks big… A Topsy turvy cake it will be! But… by ten o’clock last night our cake was lying in pieces. Top heavy… Icing was too heavy… With long faces we went to bed.
This morning early we got up and used all our artistic skills. : ) With more icing sugar we glued it together. A few toothpicks to hold some pieces. Then hoping it will just stay in place till the party starts.

desperate measures… please don’t fall…

dont fall

It didn’t fall…

And now, she and her friends are having fun… singing, laughing, swimming… The cake has been cut and we only remember the fun we had creating this ‘artwork’. We can add this to the memories we have of all our previous works of art.







This was our art for the week. And this time next year we’ll do cake art again. : )

  1. Of course it is art. What joy! Happy Birthday Mandi!

  2. Wow! These are fantastic! Love the topsy-turvey one – it’s really cool.

  3. I have seen the leftovers of the real cake today.
    Looks cool. And it tastes very good. The friends must have enjoyed it, I am sure.


  4. Thanks to you all. Mandi felt special, getting birthday wishes from America! Thanks Leslie.

  5. Very late with my wishes….happy birthday. looks wonderful – all the cakes!!

  6. What a cool cake – full of joy and risk and birthday surprise. S

  7. I’ll add “joyeux anniversaire” from France – sorry it’s so late though! Maybe I should add “cumpleaños feliz” from Spain & “Zorrionak zuri” from Euskadi (The Basque Country)!
    I guess it must be pretty much trilingual where you are too?
    It’a a nice idea to keep all the records of the cakes.
