Happy 9th Birthday, Nathan!

Today is my oldest son’s 9th birthday. I can’t believe another whole year has passed and now my Nathan is 9!

Here he is, with a picture of the yellow Angry Bird that he drew all by himself!

He requested a birthday cake with the yellow Angry Bird, so I did my best. I was pretty happy with how it came out. The angry bird is a buttercream transfer. I decided to add the green pig on at the last minute so I did that free-hand. I loved how all the colors came out. I use AmeriColor Soft Gel Paste Food Color and they make it so easy to mix up exactly what I want.

Birthday party!

With his new Plasma Ball – he loves it!


Happy Birthday, Nathan! We love you so much!

    • Lol, you could do it! It’s really not that hard. I feel like such a pro doing buttercream transfers, but if you can trace, you can do it!
