A week from tomorrow my oldest niece is becoming a teenager.
I honestly think I am handling it worse than her own mother. It's just too fast!
She and I have an interesting relationship seeing as how she was born when I was 9. With me being the baby of 4 girls, she became the little sister I never had.
She used to scale my bedroom door like a monkey and hang from the door handle trying to get me to open the door while I was doing homework.
I used to push her around the house in a neon green laundry basket and sit on the big rock in the front yard with her and eat cashews together.
And now here we are. 6 months ago she was a bridesmaid in my wedding (yikes!) and now she's an angsty tweener! Gaaaah! =(
Anyways, this got me thinking about her last few birthdays and I thought I would share the cake I made her from her 10th birthday party.
She had a swim party/BBQ so I made a giant hamburger. Mostly because I really wanted to make a hamburger cake....but whatevs......it fit.
I remember that all the kids got a real kick out of it. As we were slicing it they were asking for "no pickle" or "hold the onions" It was really cute =)
Since this was done 3 years ago I don't have any tutorial pictures. But if you like the idea and want some pointers just shoot me a comment and I would be more than happy to help.
Oh and did I mention that she's getting little boobies? Lord help me........
