Baking Dad: Ninjago Birthday Cake

Baking Dad: Ninjago Birthday Cake

The tradition continues!

In the months preceding my (now) 5-year-old son’s birthday, I frequently asked him what he wanted me to make for his special cake. For a long time the answer was “Monkey,” his favorite stuffed toy. Then he changed his mind, and decided he wanted all of the Avengers. When I asked him to narrow it down, he decided on Iron Man, before again changing his mind and saying he in fact wanted Monkey again, only Monkey who has turned into the Hulk… which lasted right up until a couple of weeks before the party when he scrapped everything and said he wanted a Ninjago cake — specifically of LLOYD, the Green Ninja.

Suffice to say, I took that and ran with it. Here’s the result!

I could nitpick a lot about this in terms of how I saw it in my head and difficulties with sticky fondant and food-coloring, but altogether it turned out really well, I thought.

Thankfully, he and his friends loved it. That’s what matters. 🙂
