Star Wars Cake & My 4 Boys

Hi hi all, I hope your fall season has been off to a great start. Here in Hong Kong we're only feeling a bit of a cool breeze. Never the less, its nice to get that cozy feeling again. Your eyes are probably still popping out of your face because you think I have 4 boys. Noo noo nooo, I only have 2 ( 3 yr and 9 months) I have 2 nephews as well ( 4 yr & 10 months) They are all very close in age which is great when we get together. I have the privilege and joy of being their official Bday cake Mommy & Auntie. When it was just the 2 older boys it wasn't too bad. As soon as the 2 younger ones were born it was a game changer. It has been a very eventful year of bday parties and celebrations.
I call it my birthday cake marathon. In asia we celebrate the babies 100 day. So my marathon started in April when my bb son reached 100 days.
Here's the cake

Then 1 month later it was my son's birthday. Some of you may remember his Buzz lightyear cake.

Then I get a lil break and October was my Nephew's 4th Birthday Star Wars theme.
Here it is

December is bb Nephews 1st Brithday. Still figuring out what to do. Then I have my bb son's 1st birthday in Jan. and the Marathon is finished. In May the Marathon starts all over again.I take it all with great joy to be apart of my 4 boys milestones. They all grow up so fast. I often look at the previous cakes I"ve made for them and see how they have outgrown certain themes and stages in life. The 2 eldest are just active lil "ANGELS":) and the lil ones are cute as ever. Before you know it it'll be thier 18th birthday and they may not even want a cake.......Sadness. But never the less I will make them one. And one day even their wedding cake. Oh tears......:) Life can get so busy but it is when I make these cakes where I can take a step back and enjoy all my sweet blessings:)
Here are some of the boys previous cakes.

This was no ordinary bus cake. I put an electric bubble machine inside the cake so when the cake got pushed out, bubbles were coming out of the bus. Is that Cool or what....if I don't say so myself:P

This was Joshua's 1st birthday cake. He had a hawaiian Luau theme. This cake was absolutly HUGE! And if you look very closely, the cake was a rainbow cake on the inside as well. I really didn't plan for it to be so big. I had so much fun making all the little details we had to make a bigger cake to place all the animals and creatures.
Aloha and have a blessed week!
