Happy Birthday Daddy

Two things I am completely passionate about:
  1. Magazines - retailers make a killing off of me at the check out counter.
  2. Making the cake for each family member's birthday.
When those two passions collide, it's usually a hot mess.

This week was A's birthday and in our traditional fashion, the kids and I set out to bake yet another masterpiece. I saw it on the cover of a magazine and just knew it was the perfect choice for this year. It was similar to this...


Four hours, a couple of "accidentally forgot" key ingredients, an emergency icing run later - this is what we ended up with...


O, well - it's the thought that counts and the kids had a blast!

Happy Birthday Daddy!

When your baking show airs on the Food Network, let me know. :) Abstract cakes are all the craze.

Is that crushed Cap'n Crunch on the sides? To that, all I have to say is YUM!
