Lizard Cake

For Hunter’s Birthday I decided to make a special cake. I seen a variation of this cake on The Frugal Girl blog – one of my favorites. It was fairly easy to do. I used a box cake mix with 2 round cake pans. I made a practice cake a few weeks before to try it out. So above is the cake before icing.

The actual birthday cake is below. One leg looks too long, but the kids didn’t notice and everyone loved it!

Can’t wait to try a castle cake for Savannah’s Birthday!
