I love to bake. Cakes, bread, cookies, and anything else sweet to eat.
The fact that I love to bake does not make me a good baker. Far from it. But I have fun with it anyway and have been known to try to get creative with my family’s birthday and holiday cakes. Here are a few examples:
A dinosaur-themed volcano cake. We used crumbled Oreo cookies for the lava rocks and lit 4th of July sparklers on top to replicate an eruption:
A pirate’s treasure chest cake:
A skateboard cake:
A hardhat cake, from when Huck was little and liked the show “Bob the Builder”:
A wizard’s hat cake, from when Tom had a Harry Potter-themed birthday party:
A cake I make every year on the first day of school:
One day, while wondering whether I could make a book-shaped cake and searching around for the words “book” and “cake” on the internet, I came across these amazing book cakes.

Enjoy! And have some cake next time you sit down to read a book. It is really quite a nice combination.
See you in the stacks!
