Last week was Don's birthday. It was also my birthday. Yeppers, we share the same birthday, though not the same birth year. I will always be the younger gal in this relationship. I thought it would be cool for the boys to have total control (yeah, this was hard for me because I like to help...too much) over making their dad a cake. But bake they did and an awesome job too.
Benny read the instructions and measured the ingrediants while Jack mixed it all up. They were super thrilled with themselves. The most exciting part I am sure was mixing up the frosting!
Once their creation was baked they set to work to carefully decorate it. I had bought two containers of frosting so you can imagine just how much there was to get onto the cake. But very carefully and with love they got it all on. Most of it piled into the center of the cake (believe it or not there was a hole in the middle of that cake)!
The result was a fantastic gift for their dad. Of course we all enjoyed eating it. Well, except for Jack who is far too picky about his cake.
