Kids will always have a special place in my heart. I spent my high school and college free time making Wilton cakes for them. Seeing their eyes light up no matter how big or small their cake is makes every minute of cake decorating worth while . The story of this cake is another one I will not forget.
Janina is turning 10 and I was informed that they normally spend her birthday skiing since it falls right around Christmas time. This year she wanted to have party just to have my cake. No one in my lifetime has anyone wanted a party to have my cake! The theme of her party is candy. She is giving away mini gumball machines for favors so we decided to make a big one in cake.
Pouch is made out of rice krispies. Also served as the candle holder
The coin slot
The whole cake again
The top of the machine could have been bigger but that was the only one I found close to the size I needed. Till the day before pick up, I was still scrambling for the perfect top but they were either too big or too small. Hopefully I find the right one next time!
Happy Birthday Janina! Hope you liked your cake!
