Some of my nieces and nephews have allergies, so having cake on their birthdays seems pointless. I'm so impressed with the creativity of my sister at finding alternatives. So good I have to share.

My nephew loves candy. (It's about the only sweet thing that he can eat). So they had a Candyland birthday for him. My sister took small boxes, arranged them as a rectabgle and glued a candyland graphic on top of them. Instead of the "cutting of the cake", we cut the boxes apart. The kids were able to fill them with the candy of their choice.

The Slug

This cake was made by Heidi. (Hilarious inside joke.) This cake was made using the 3D Lamb cake pan. Just trimmed off the ears to make the head of the slug smoother. Then the eyes were made with styrofoam attached with wooden dowels.

Bratz Runway

For my niece, Kailyn. She was very much into Bratz. So I thought of doing a Fahsion Cat Walk. I actually used the 1979 Spaceship pan (trimmed it a bit). The lights, I turned white chocolate chip upside down. And I just created a curtain backdrop that I inserted in the cake.
