Since it's also Children's Book Week, I thought we'd celebrate Mom's Day with an ode to all the stories she read us when we were little.
Anyone else remember that delicious moment when YOU got to pick the book?
(Posted here, but the baker isn't listed. Anyone know?)
And how about the shelf packed with Little Golden Books, like The Poky Little Puppy here?
(By Corrie Cakes)
The Velveteen Rabbit. Classic.
(Don't you just want to squeeze him?)
There's so much great art in kids' books, too, like the bright colors of The Very Hungry Caterpillar:
So fun to see the butterfly on there, too!
(Uh, spoiler alert?)
Charlotte's Web is perfect for moms who act out the characters with funny voices:
(By Brooke Butts, found here.)
And that's a really clever design on that spiderweb.
Ooooh, here's one of my personal favorites as a kid, The Secret Garden:
(By de koekenbakkers)
Completely in love with that cookie tree with the little bird perched inside. And the teensy tiny butterflies! Ah!
This Rainbow Fish cake really captures the beauty of the book:
(By Wendy's Cake Space)
Just look at those lovely watercolor scales. Mmm.
Guess how much I love this Guess How Much I Love You cake:
(By Paula Cake Couture)
WOW. Incredible combo of 2D painting with 3D sculpting/piping! So, so gorgeous.
Of course, no mention of story time with Mom is complete without the good doctor:
(By The Pastry Studio)
Seuss, that is.
Or Pat the Bunny! And The Giving Tree!
Now I'm torn between wanting to pet all my books and just wanting to eat them. :)
And finally, a classic by Roald Dahl, and the best cake depiction of his chocolate waterfall I've seen:
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!
(By Lovely Cakes)
Seriously, isn't that chocolate lake perfect? With the ripples? And the boat! And the tiny Wonka bars! I like how even the tiers look like they're seeping chocolate between the layers. It's genius, I say. GENIUS.
So here's to you, moms, and all the times you read "just one more" before bedtime. Thanks for teaching us to love reading, great stories, and sometimes even funny voices. :)
Happy Mother's day, everybody. Now go call your mom.
