I made this for my college roommate's 30th Birthday. National Lampoon's Vacation is one of my all time favorite movies, so needless to say, I enjoyed every minute of working on this cake! Here are some pictures complete with Aunt Edna on top of the family Truckster, purse in hand.

These little gems were a lot of work. They are cupcakes frosted with buttercream icing and topped with fondant feathers, eyes, and beak. I was very concerned that I would fall short as far as them looking like big bird. I was pleased to see all of the pieces fall into place!
This past week I have been busy with cakes! It's been wonderful. Here is a mermaid cake based loosely on The Little Mermaid. I enjoyed all of the little details that went into this piece.
