5 Tutorials for Creating a Cake in Photoshop

Happy birthday to me, Happy birthday to him, Happy birthday, happy birthday, Happy birthday to a whole bunch of us.

Birthdays are on my mind these days. From now until Christmas five of the six members in our immediate family celebrate their special day.  And as this mom has always been a sucker for these particular occasions and likes to make as big a deal out of them as her adult children will allow, it does make for a busy time of year.

Nowadays, that big deal isn't what it used to be, of course. With my kids scattered far and wide it generally means I try to deliver their gifts sometimes near the date.  It's a long way from the efforts I made when they were little.

Thinking about those parties of long ago, with tiny tots running through my house, with family gathered for a dinner celebration, I remembered the preparations, most particularly the cakes, which had to be special. I even went so far as taking some decorating classes, that helped me produce everything from iced princesses to trucks.

Those days are long gone, those lessons long forgotten. With the majority of my days spent in front of a computer it seems more likely that the only fancy cake I'd create would be in Photoshop. Here are just a few examples of how that's done:
