Hey Uniqua, You're Really Brave and Strong!

If you are a parent of young children, toddler age, mostly, you will know who Uniqua is. All others, meet The Backyardigans.

It's really a fantastic show with music and stories galore. Isabel adores it. Her favorite is Uniqua (Not Urbanesca, Mo), the pink one who is...well, we're not quite sure what she is. She's a 'uniqua.' A Unique animal. Isabel calls her a bug.

Isabel: Make me a Uniqua cake. Are you making me a Uniqua cake? When are you making me a Uniqua cake.

Alright already, I GIVE.

The cakes were huge. I was attempting a new recipe and it made 12 cups of batter. That's a lot of cake people. Here they are, iced and in the fridge for a bit so the icing can get hard a bit.

I overdid it on the icing. I really did. This above icing was tinted pink.

After I iced the cake, I colored, rolled and cut the darker pink spots for Uniqua's face.

One happy gal. Seriously, look at how TALL that cake is?

Here she is. I was going to make her antennas out of fondant, but I did not have the patience to tint the white fondant the light pink color, so I made them out of pink metal wire.
The cake is tall. Isabel loved it.

Now, if only I can hire a staff to clean up after me.

Y'know, I think I gain weight every time I look at your blog! lol!

Ugh. Now I want some frosting.

Very, very cute (and tall) cake, my friend! :-)
