Ernie or a way to frighten your child. You decide.

On Wednesday Jenni posted photos of the cake she made for her son Oscar's 3rd birthday. He wanted a pink monster truck. I think she did an excellent job.

I made a comment about a cake that I made for my eldest son when he was young. And Jenni responded promptly. Here's the email I received from Jenni with my comment attached.

Nice job. I once made an Ernie cake for one of my boys. Ernie turned out looking a lot like Don King.

So Jenni, here it is........................

My Ernie

Don King

The real Ernie

My Ernie

It's pretty easy to see the resemblance.



  1. Michelle, I am laughing out loud! LOVE IT! Can you make me a Don King cake for my birthday next year??

  2. Ernie is just adorable! I love that cake!

  3. That's just plain creepy. He looks maniacal in cake version. Cheers Michele!!

  4. BWAHAHA. Sorry. Couldn't help myself.

  5. Your Ernie cake turned out way better than anything I could ever attempt! Princess Nagger identified him right away! ;)

  6. I'm with Princess Nagger - I think he looks just like Ernie!

  7. Once more you surprise with all of your talents! Good job!


  8. Ha! Love it. But your cake was good, I would have thought of Ernie before Don King.

  9. Ernie and the monster pink truck are fabulous! LOVE the marshmallow hub caps and kleg lights on the truck. Ya'll rate an 11+ on the creativity-o-meter :-)

  10. Awww that is the cutest thing ever!

  11. I LOVE the new look.

    and I never realized how much Ernie does look like Don King. Learn something new everyday

  12. You did a really good job on the Ernie cake!

  13. Bah, you're being too hard on yourself (and Ernie). I think the cake is a dead ringer!
