And my boy is 3 now! I scoured Google Images with him at my side for an idea what to do. He was surprisingly very opinionated about how his cake should look! I ordered the kit online like I did last year with this Diego cake and got step-by-step instructions. Each step is so simple and easy. I love how everything comes together to produce the end result, and I love people thinking it was a store bought cake when they first see it. As long as they believe me when I tell them it's not! We made the switch to vegan foods about a year and a half ago and it has been a journey. I think my diet and health will forever be a work in progress. I have great will-power at the store but not so much in other people's homes... Last year I wasn't ready to try a vegan cake but now that I've been experimenting more with the world of vegan baking I took it on! I did pumpkin spice like last year too and this year it turned out even better I think (everything tastes better when it's cruelty free)! I still used store bought frosting in the interest of time and sanity. This cake took 6 cans of frosting. As you can see there is a big hole in the middle of the cake that I cut out in the first step so I had leftover cake. I did attempt to make cake pops but it's nothing I'd take a picture of. I don't think I'll be making those again though. Cake mixed together with the frosting is a bit much to bite into when you already have birthday cake right there. I think one birthday cake is enough sugar for any occasion!
