Happy Father’s Day! (Harley-Davidson Flame Cake)


Life around here is never dull 🙂 Especially not on special occasions like today…. Father’s Day!  So let me tell you how my day went…

First I have to tell you a little about my husband, David.  He’s a wonderful husband and father, but when it comes to giving him a gift for any occasion, he is a big pain in the neck!  So this year, I skipped the stores, both in person and online, and instead I gave him some more unconventional gifts.  The first, I cleaned out our closet 🙂  Hey, he loved it!  The second gift was a gift of sacrifice.  I joined him at his cult….Crossfit.  (It’s not really a cult 🙂  Now you have to understand, I don’t workout.  I mean, I kind of look like I do, but I don’t.  I just watch what I eat and run around like a crazy person making cakes and chasing kids!

So to say that I enjoyed getting up at 5:30 this morning to run, do burpies, step ups and a multitude of other torturous activities would be a complete and utter lie.  I hated it!  (Even more so now that every muscle in my body feels like its made of stone!)  But I did it, at least what I could do of it!  But of  course I needed to get back home, because…… I had a special occasion cake to finish before church at 11:00!  I thought I would have plenty of time to finish after our workout, but no it was an extra hard one, so instead of being gone a little over an hour, we were gone almost two!

Ironically, the cake I had to finish was a Harley-Davidson themed Father’s day cake that my son’s teacher requested.  Because I had a lot to do, I enlisted the help of my husband (since it was his fault I was running late 😉 to cut out fondant letters.  So I spent the last hour and a half before I had to leave cutting out fondant flames, attaching them to the cake and painting them; creating a fondant Harley-Davidson logo, and prepping my husband’s fathers’ day meal in the crock pot; while getting ready for church.  Miraculously, we were only 12 minutes late 😀  And she loved the cake.  Sorry about the lousy pics.  We didn’t have time to take any, so my husband shot these with his iPhone!  Lol.

So Happy Father’s day to all you dads out there!  Or as they say on Cake Wrecks “Happy Falker Satherhood!”

  1. Beth, way to give it your best at CrossFit – sorry it had to be an extra-hard workout. You did great, though!

    The cake’s great, and it was so nice of him to wear a matching shirt for the pic. 🙂 You never cease to amaze me with your creative genius!
