Cake Poll

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.

I like the watermelon idea. You could do red velvet for the red since you are in the south now.

WOW you're so good. I am feeling amazing to just bake a box cake and frost it properly. Boston's poor 1st birthday cake, earthquaked on the 2nd layer--I'm just not talented in the whole cooking/baking area. Good thing jer was never much into food! ;) Good luck; I voted for the staking toy--I may have to try that one, it seems easy enough. If you can pull any of these off, you must post how-to instructions for the rest of us untalented moms!

I think the stacking toys would be cool. You could use sugar cookies for the shapes...might be easier to do then cake!
