    Great story and very neat cake. Aren't family traditions just the best?

    May you have the strength to continue making cakes for the next generation, even if they have to be scaled back a bit. That is a memory that will be talked about their whole lives.

    Now that's what I call a cake. Your grandson is soooo lucky!

    This reminded me of a story my sister told me about her kids. When they were small she didn't have a lot of money for Easter baskets, but she alway's made sure to buy them a giant chocolate bunny. She stopped when they turned 18 & 19, stating they were getting too old. That next Easter they came in the house and wanted to know where she hid their bunny! Neither were very happy campers...It's all about family tradition.

    I don't think your GS will ever be too old for grannie's cake.

    Wow! That is one terrific cake. No wonder he feels he is never too old for his soccer cake. How was the rock climbing? Teeheehee!

    Looks yummy! I, also, have so many pans I'll probably never use them all. I do have the bowling ball and have used it quite a few times. The doll one got used a few times but never ot to ride a racecar!

    I didn't stay for the festivities so I didn't get to see the decimated cake. I use boxed mixes for the cakes. Nothing beats Betty Crocker for a moist cake. My DD made a yellow cake from scratch, and truthfully mine was moister and tasted better. I make the Wilton Buttercream frosting.

    I love my kids even if they are in their 40tys we still have fun with stuff like that. Enjoy.

    My daughter made a dalmation cake for her God child's 1 Birthday they still laugh at the pictures of their little black faces but more about the Black poops these 14 kids had the next day. LOL

    Yeah, one year, when my youngest son turned 30, I asked him what kind of cake he wanted and he said he wanted one with black roses. He thought he was funny, but he got a cake covered in black roses. Wish I could find a pic of that one. My youngest DGD loves dogs and every year wants a dog cake. She always asks for a Gus cake. My Gus is a Rottie, so I tell her no one wants to eat a cake that is all black. So I make a Heidi cake. She is a blond Great Dane.

    Oh what a beautiful memory, I do the same thing but not with a soccer ball, My DGS loves cupcakes made in Ice cream cones, I would make them and he would help decorate, I had all kinds of sprinkles and differant colored icing. This is how we make our memories. Your cake looks divine, I wish I could put my hand through the monitor and grab a piece.

    My daughter made a wonderful cake one year and you can do it. She bought a cheap plastic truck and put a square cake in the bed. She used a can of frosting on the top to look like dirt. It was a huge hit and my grandson got to play with the truck

    Oh how great that you do this for your grandkids! I used to do this for my Kids when they were little and every year they picked their cake. It is a lot of work! Great job! I know they loved it and will always talk about it when they become adults!
