Did someone say CAKE?

My mom's friend Pam makes the most amazing cakes. Not only are they beautiful and incredibly creative, mom and dad say they are also VERY yummy. (I never get to have any cake because they always get chocolate, and I'm not allowed to have chocolate, but I got some Frosty Paws so I could celebrate too!)


The cakes Pam makes are always very fresh. We think she makes them with eggs from her own chickens!


So this year for dad's birthday, Pam asked mom how she wanted his cake to be decorated. Dad loves the Florida Keys and manatees, so mom suggested a tropical island or sea creature theme. Mom & dad are amazed what Pam comes up with!

And we had thought there was no way she could outdo last year's mountain stream cake. We were wrong!  (Click here to see photos of the mountain stream cake.)

  2. Hi Garth, That cake sounds amazing! Our Mommy and Daddy make us cakes for our birthdays, but they are definitely not as cool looking as the ones your parents' friend makes.

    Mommy also wanted us to say thank you for the captions on the pictures because she felt as though she was seeing the cakes, even though she is visually impaired.

    1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! For Brooke, I'm going to describe the cake. It's a round cake, and half of it is decorated with white icing and half with blue icing. On the side with the white icing is a dog lying relaxed in a hammock suspended from two tall palm trees. (The dog is supposed to be me!) The blue side of the cake is the ocean, and it is filled with all kinds of sea creatures! There's a manatee, and lots of brightly colored fish, jellyfish, sponges, pink and red coral, and seaweed. It's very pretty and colorful. Dad counted the different colors and he said it has NINE different colors in it. My mom's friend Pam is very very talented and her cakes are always very pretty and very yummy.

    1. Thanks Miss Fluffy Tail and Khousin Khyra!!!

      Sometimes mom thinks about getting me a brother or sister, but -- to tell you the truth -- I don't really like puppies. They are wild and crazy and they jump all over you and they have very sharp piranha-like teeth that really hurt when they chomp down on your ears and your loose skin -- and they really like to play bitey-face with those awful sharp teeth. No, puppies scare me and I don't really want them in my house. We puppy-sat for my cousin Mia when she was really little and it was a very bad experience!

    1. That's another issue -- mom says the Garth-mobile is only big enough for one dog and that she'd have to get a bigger car but she doesn't want to have to put gas in a bigger car.

      Thanks for stopping by!
