And the Answer is.....

Saturday, December 24, 2011

On my last post I asked you to look at the picture and try to guess what I was making. Well, I'm sad to say that no one got it right... in fact no one even commented or dared to guess!!! I can't say that I blame you for not trying, they really were weird looking things! LOL

Ok, you've waited long enough. Here's the answer.... BUZZARDS!!!!!! :D

I had a total blast doing this cake! My client asked for an "Over the Hill" birthday cake, but gave me the freedom to decorate it anyway I wanted. Preferring to make something besides the usual "Grim Reaper/grave yard" or the "Road of Life" cake, I decided to go out on a limb. (Hahaha... get it? Buzzards.... tree... limb! Hahaha) So this is what I came up with:

As I put this cake together, I caught myself giggling out loud several times. When I saw the buzzard on top of the cake with his head hanging down right above the "You Old Buzzard" sign... it just make me chuckle! I laughed so much that my daughter thought I was loosing it! They loved the cake and I found that helping someone celebrate their 40th birthday was a real hoot!!!

Get it? Hoot... bird... buzzard? Ok... I'm done. ;)



  1. I just barely checked your last blog entry about guessing what it was. I have to tell you--I totally thought it was a rat! I was wondering why you didn't finish the end of the tail, but it makes sense now!

  2. Anonymous-
    Haha, that's great! Someone else told me they looked like horses hooves... it made me chuckle!


  3. Your work is amazing. I'm a new follower. Can I find you on Facebook? I don't see a link?

    1. Peggy,
      I don't have a facebook page right now, but I've been playing around with the idea. Hmmmmmm.....?

  4. Wow Judy! I love the attention to detail you put in each of your cakes. The candles on this one are so cute! And the borders around each layer are so precise. The buzzards remind me of the ones on Splash Mountain, just before the giant hill (Only much cuter!)

  5. Judy- Just now saw this. Not sure I would have dared to guess. Seriously. You need to be on "Cake Boss" or another competition show. Your work is amazing.
    Always a fan,
