The theme was all of her favourite cartoon characters and animals: Dora, Kai Lan, Elmo, Little Bear, Ruby and Max, and cat and dog faces.
My best-friend's daughter celebrated her 2nd birthday November 1st and I was so excited when she asked me to bake her cake, which is maybe the best gift I could give her!
The lesson I learned: stick to one character or animal theme! As enjoyable as it was to make all of their faces and have a variety of colours, it turned out to be a lot more work then I anticipated. Fortunately for me, I'm an excellent planner and organizer so it worked out okay in the end even though, unfortunately for me, I am also a perfectionist which is why it probably took me longer then it would most people.
