Oh how I wish my brother's army men had had wicks when I was a kid!
This cake belongs in an English garden with lots of wildflowers and vines and antique roses and tea-dyed lace dresses and big floppy hats. The bugs and plants will happily eat up all the crumbs I leave behind.
Now not having a cake pan is no excuse for not making a cake. Just bake them in little cans and you have adorable mini cakes!
That sneaky octopus looks like he's ready to blow out that green candle the moment you light it. You could literally wipe that look off his face and save a lot of trouble.
I was never a dollhouse girl, I always thought they were a little creepy and probably came to life when I wasn't looking. I wouldn't blame them if they were presented with cake like this.
I don't usually serve my birthday cakes on a stump but this is so lovely, I may just have to start!
We are just here to guard the candles, please have mercy!
