Pretty sure this "Papa" is going to love his birthday cake -- love that his family wanted to celebrate all of the things he loves (in this case - fishing, the grandkids... who call him papa... and U of Kentucky - squint and you can see the logo on the hat!) His daughter even picked the sunglasses and yellow shirt for him to wear. He's so cute!!
I absolutely LOVE when I get a totally unique cake order. This one definitely fits into that category... and it has perfect timing, with the centennial anniversary of the sinking earlier this year, there was tons of inspiration for me to use!! This cake doesn't commemorate that date though, rather, the 7th birthday of our friend, Jackson, who LOVES all things titanic. (In case you were wondering, the iceberg is cake... which would have been MUCH better to run into!!)

Normally, I spend the good amount of time on my cakes getting each tier square and level - perfectly straight. If it's off just a bit, it drives me crazy. So, it's hard to flip the switch in my head and actually make a cake that's SUPPOSED to be crooked! This particular topsy turvy design celebrates a 10th birthday - the bright bold colors are perfect for tweens!
