Sometimes kids have a different way of seeing things, that’s why I always consult my 5 year old son when I design my cakes. Of the designs I made for this cake, his comment for this one stuck to me and made me decide to make this one.

His comment was “Mommy, it looks like the man is playing vs the candles.” And a light bulb flashed above my head. My idea for this cake is that the cake topper was playing against his age. All of us would want to stay young and exercising is a great way to feel younger. I also simplified the design, since this isn’t a child’s cake.
