The month of February is huge in our household. We have 6 Birthday's between my family and my husband's family this month. With only 4 weekends and a limited amount of time, we've been combining the Birthday celebrations for the past few years. This weekend we are celebrating the Birthday of my 84 year old Grandmother who is a HUGE fan of the Cleveland Indians (her hometown team). My nephew Eli is turning 3, and my son Garrick is turning 6.
I wanted to make a cake that combines all 3 of them in a somewhat cohesive design. This is what I came up with. Matt was a big help as usual.
The top of the cake is Chief Wahoo of the Cleveland Indians on home plate with a stack of balls and a baseball bat. Happy Birthday Gram!!!
The 2nd tier of the cake is in honor of my son Garrick who has had a passion of construction and heavy equipment since he was old enough to see his first one.
The bottom tier is all Eli. My nephew is in LOVE with trains.
