Lucas is turning 2 on August 29th. I have a busy month ahead of me, so I want to start planning the cake and come up with ideas. Vote in the poll at the upper left corner for my cake ideas.
1. Watermelon - Lucas loves watermelon and with this handy cake pan set, I could make a domed watermelon cake. Green frosting on the outside, a layer of white cake, and then pink cake on the inside with chocolate chips for seeds...
2. Teletubbies - as annoying as they are, Lucas thinks they are great. Sometimes he gets to watch them for a few minutes before his nap. I used to think they were dirty and wrong, but now I see that they are just acting like toddlers (not dirty toddlers, regular ones).
3. Hippopotamus - Lucas has a thing for the hippo in the Eric Carle book, Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? Every time we get to the hippo page he gets so happy and points to the hippo's mouth. For some reason it's really amusing to him.
4. A Stacking Toy - We all know Lucas loves to stack. I could make a cake replica of something similar to what Lisa bought him... This would require lots of cakes stacked on top of each other and carved into different sizes. It would be a lot of work and could end up a complete mess or really cool.
So, go ahead and vote. I'll probably go with what you choose. Let me know if you have any better ideas, too.
