Eating Cake

My Darling daughter turned 7 last week. She's my baby and she is growing up. hmmmmmmm. A little happy, a little weepy, a lot emotional. And we haven't even started talking about me yet. She's definitely got "high maintenance" written all over her. Wonder where she gets that from????? Ahem...

So, ever since my oldest son's first birthday, every year, my husband Byron has made a special cake for each of our three childrens birthdays. I bake the cakes - and then he stays up to all hours of the night artistically applying the frosting and embellishments so that the kids wake up on their birthday excited to look at Dad's edible creation. Warning: black frosting stains skin and teeth for about three days. Don't try this at home kids. So, here is the "Baby Bratz Dolls" cake he made. ('cause it's all about Bratz dolls these days) Side note here - I have a hard time digesting the baby bratz. The dolls, that is. Certainly not the cake.

We have the same tradition in our family too. My children love their homemade birthday cakes. I agree with you on the bratz dolls. My daughter is into them too. I think it's the name I dislike so much. That and that the dolls wear the skankiest clothes.

Hey Nyse, Can you get me a copy of that Thomas the Tank Engine Cake Picture? I would love to include it in the scrapbook of cakes book I put together in honor of all sleep Byron has lost due to his confection endeavors.

I can't believe how big Oliva has gotten! In my mind she is still a little girl. She has grown into a lovely young lady. And Byron's cake looks amazing!

Miss you guys!

Yum-my! That cake reminds me of when I was a kid. My mom would do whatever cake we wanted for our birthday and it was usually complicated. That's cool your DH does that for your kids.

PS, he's a good lookin' guy;) tee hee
