A Birthday Cake for a World Traveler

In May, I was asked to make a birthday cake for a dad who has traveled the world. His favorite pair of shoes are white Converse All-Stars, which had to be on the cake. That, to me, was the easy part. The challenge was incorporating landmarks from some of the places Mr. World Traveler has visited.  These landmarks are so far from each other, they just might be out of your  hd tv antennas‘  reach.  *wink*

Two of the landmarks are in the next photo. Please, please tell me you recognize them!

Try this next one…

This cake turned out be quite a learning experience for me, in more ways than one. Yes, it looks simple, but a lot of work went into it. In the end, it left me feeling, well, humbled.  I have to admit, this wasn’t my best work, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t give it my best effort.  *sigh*

This is a theme I’d use for a cake for my Mom, who herself was is a world traveler.  Hmm…

Cheers, y’all!

    Wow. This one is really interesting. I wish I knew how to make cakes. :) It might not be your best but the output looked pretty cool, in my opinion.


  3. Wow, I love how you incorporated various landmarks around the outside of the cake like that. They’re each simple on their own, but together, they pack quite the punch to show something very special to the birthday boy…er, man, hehe. Great job!
