I always try to make an 'event' out of everything. I spend a lot of time planning & the birthday cake is always so important. I did, over the past years, make a lot of the kid's cakes, but for awhile, found an unbelievable caterer who made the most amazing cakes. One year, when Adam was into Titanic, this lady actually made a 3 dimensional Titanic with the lifeboats & everything sailing into an iceberg made out of marshmallow cream. She's made a life-size computer, complete with keyboard, mouse & monitor for Vaughn once. However, her catering business took off & birthday cakes just didn't fit into her time frame anymore.
I love to make cakes - I love to plan parties. Unfortunately, this year, Adam didn't really want one. He just wanted the family, so I planned his birthday cake & dinner for just the 4 of us. So, last evening I decided to get the baking done. To make a long story short, the cake fell apart when I was taking it out of the pan. It was time for Plan B.
After our annual birthday breakfast before school, I dropped into the bakery of our grocery store. All of the pre-made cakes were covered in icing flowers. When I explained the predicament to the baker, I told her that I wanted a boy's cake. She told me that it was no problem at all - she would have a 'boy's cake' ready by the time he was out of school.
So, after Adam's favorite dinner of pizza & wings:
I proceeded to bring the cake to the table. Vaughn and Amy looked at it & started to laugh. I didn't know what was so funny, until Vaughn pointed out the yellow icing on the cake:
It was shaped like a penis. All I wanted was a 'boy's cake' - Not a cake with boy parts on it. It's no wonder after Adam made a wish & I told him to 'blow', Amy & Vaughn couldn't contain their laughter.
All in all, it was a fun and humorous night - one that won't soon be forgotten!
Have a great evening, everyone. Peace.
