the birthday boy with his birthday cake

We had a little party for Ryan on Sunday. Funnily enough, none of his friends were there ๐Ÿ˜› So I guess it was just an excuse for the grown-ups to get-together, and gobble up the ‘taufu far’ made by my brother-in-law’s mom. Heavenly!

As mentioned earlier, me and my eldest sister got him a specialty cake by Min. I brought FA with me to collect the cake, so it could sit on her lap while I do my usual F1 stunts. Min asked me what Ryan likes, and the first thing that came to me was ‘Cars‘. Maybe I am out of touch with him, seeing that he loves guns now. But a cake that resembles a gun seems wrong for a 3 year old, no? Anyway Min got to work on the cake, and…

The above is a scene from Cars the movie, when Lightning McQueen fell into the ditch in an unsuccessful attempt to win at a race against Doc. Mater stood by, ready to fish McQueen out. Everything is edible, except for the toy cars and the paper signboards, hand-made by Min.

The cake was most delicious! We got the moist chocolate, and it was very rich and rather awesome, heh. You can get your own specialty cake from MamaMin, just check out her blog and Flickr for oodles of photos.

As for Ryan, the kid grows up so fast. His punches are beginning to hurt. Wish I could freeze him at 8 months old.



  1. I can imagine the boy with an Afro…

  2. hahah…creative cake there! Did Ryan like it? o he only enjoys the eating part:P

  3. hahahaha… Happy Belated Birthday to Ryan! so cute! =)

  4. cuteness! happy bday.. nephew?

  5. I love the cakes from when I was young. My brother Paul once had one in the shape of a train covered in smarties! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Of course, I had that Spaceship one that I made for my 42nd birthday, so I guess I haven’t grown up that much! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I’m amazed by the cake. Custom made eh? I love the complex cakes with a proper theme suiting the occasion. I had an idea for a cake for my birthday which probably no bakery would want to do due to the various…less-than-legal decorative items I wanted on it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Woot, nice cake! Happy Belated Birthday to Ryan!

    BTW, you know the time is ripe for you to get him some heavily-padded boxing gloves when his punches are starting to feel like, well, punches!

  8. i would think it costs….. 85 bucks?

  9. suertes: because he can’t be anymore chinese, hence the direct opposite theory thingy?

    iris: he loved it ๐Ÿ˜€ i reminded him about the scene in the movie. not sure if he took it in. maybe was too giddy with all the people around him

    rachel: heheh

    min: think so? ๐Ÿ˜›

    dabs: i had mickey mouse, tweety bird… that’s all i can remember for now. and only because i have the photos

    HB: heh yah mamamin makes custom/ specialty cakes. let me guess your cake… comes in the form of a leaf?

    leongsoon: shouldn’t i get some protective gear for myself instead??

    zewt: hah! no

  10. I dunno, actually it’s because his expression reminds me of Gary Coleman, heh heh..

  11. more than that kah?
