So it just so happens that my family and I have recently entered the world of Cable Television. I know, I know. We are a bit old fashioned and cheap. But we have dawned anew….and let me just tell you! There are a lot of channels being piped into my TV every single day. Who knew there were cooking shows available ROUND THE CLOCK! Down right amazing. And I must add here, there is no one walking this good earth that is more annoying than Sponge Bob. I don’t care if he DOES have Square Pants.

So when we signed up for Cable TV we got this special promo deal that included all channels for a short time. Yes. I said ALL channels.

Now we are a little bit naive, and old fashioned as I previously mentioned. We didn’t realize what ALL channels meant.

Didn’t realize until my TeenSonMark came in to my room one morning and said “Um, Mom. We turned off the TV. There was some show on called The Naked News at Nine.”

Excuse me? The NAKED news?
Turn it off! Unplug the contraption! Deliver all remotes to me immediately! No. One. Browse. Any. Channels. We have made a serious error….there are inappropriately naked people hanging out on the television just waiting to scar the eyes of innocent children. 

Shut the front door. 
Or should I say “Open the front door” and throw out the trash.

Which is what we did in the form of some fancy technology that allows one to block the naked.

Wow. Seriously. Naked, on the News. Just another one of my Mother-Of -The-Year moments. (There are getting to be so many!)

You might be thinking, what in the world does this story have to do with Buzz Light Year. Well, after I saw to it that all our naked visitors were blocked…I discovered some fabulous things. Shows like The Cake Boss, The Ace of Cakes and Cupcake Wars. Get out of town….there are some talented people out there! Talented people making FABULOUS, OUT OF THIS WORLD creations.

I am not one of those people.

This Buzz Light Year Cake is just an easy way to put a little smile on a little birthday face. I’ll let you in on a secret, my friends. Kids don’t care if all of your decorating is perfect.

Just look at the back of my cake here. The Cake Boss would be appalled. It would not win any awards. However, I’m not out to win awards.


Just hoping to win a smile or two.
I bet you can, too.

  1. You are so talented!

    Hey, we have been on LIMITED Basic cable with Comcast for awhile; yes, there is such a thing. Only about $18/mo., you get all the local channels, Discovery, History, Travel, Cspan and some shopping and Spanish channels. No crappy stuff. No one seems to know about this package, so I'm passing it on to you~

  2. Thank goodness there are not any naked cooking shows! I would hate to have to ban The Cooking Channel!!!!!! I love your Buzz Lightyear Cake. It's darling (and big smile from a cute little boy is much better than winning a cake battle,in my book). Fabulous job on both cakes!

  3. Loved your post and LOVE that cake! Perfect enough, in my book. And his smile says it all. So a little secret – no cable here either. Yup, rabbit ears & converter box for me. Although I do wish I could watch some of those fab cooking shows (and I bet my kids would love to watch Disney). Great job on the cake!!

    1. Obtain edu backlinks from at very low price raegns. Edu backlinks are actually a lot more great authority back links.These kinds of backlinks are usually very searched by a lot of webmasters all over the world since it is getting much more recognition and energy compared to other frequent backlinks.Edu internet domain names are generally considered remarkably by search engines like yahoo as well as inbound links from .edu internet domain names are generally numerous times more beneficial than normal ones.But precisely what about Edu’s? No person can purchase edu domains except of educational organizations. And that’s exactly why they have the most important faith from Search engines.Yahoo and google considers that EDU website wouldn’t link back to a web site with low-informational articles or content material this is not value Google’s interest. Maybe someone may state that anyone can easily obtain edu back links by signing up edu website, however that is far from the truth. Due to the fact no person can purchase edu website except of educational institutions.To confirm you can attempt and sign-up edu site.

  4. Jamie – you are amazing! My little (Buzz-Addicted) grandson would LOVE it… It's surprising to see how quickly we can develop a “NEED” for TV. All I need to be sure of having now is all the sports channels for when my sons-in-law come home with my daughters from college for a sports fix. However – sometimes it's (mind-numbingly) fun to occasionally let yourself peer in on something as crazy as “Swamp People”… Who knows, maybe there's a 'reality' show out there about those crazy people who live in UTAH!¿

  5. Very cute cake! My kids and I enjoy all the cooking shows too. We watch them together as they are always age appropriate.

  6. You are so creative and all your cakes are so darling. When I'm making a cake I have the hardest time coming up with decorating ideas. I love yours and will catalog them for future cake making days. Thanks for sharing your ideas and knowledge.

  7. Love that cake, and I’m going to make a similar one for my son’s birthday. The link to your buttercream frosting is not working, though. Could you email me the recipe if it’s not too much trouble? Thanks!
