Inedible Birthday Cakes - Oh Pinteresting Wednesday


In honor of my husband's birthday on Friday, I am baking him a cake, and I hope he isn't reading this blog post until tomorrow or else the surprise will be spoiled ;-) Actually he hardly reads my blog so I'm sure I am pretty safe until the surprise is revealed tonight. I like cake, I like decorating cakes and customizing them to whoever I am baking it for. The first birthday of my husband's that we celebrated we were actually engaged by that time, we got engaged after 10 months of dating. For that birthday I did a Chargers-them cake.


This was his cake 2 years ago. I am doing another Chargers-theme cake as well for this year's birthday.



I made a chocolate cake with a peanut butter whipped cream filling.
Hope he enjoys the cake and all the hard work I put into it :-)
For my Oh Pinteresting Wednesday post, I decided to continue with the cake theme.


google


However, I found images of birthday cakes that are non-edible, however, made very creatively and can last many many birthdays and wont dry out or become spoiled unlike a real cake. Here, take a look!
