Birthday Cake

The kids decided to make a cake for my birthday. It was reasonably cool out, we had a sparkly new oven to bake it in, and it's always fun to bake a cake.

They decided to use a box mix instead of baking from scratch. This allowed them to focus more on the all-important task of decorating the cake.

"If we had white frosting we could write on it: 'Happy Birthday Mommy, Now You're an Old Fart'. "

Finished product:

Happy Birthday to youuuuu...

Remember, my kids made me a cake on my last birthday that said, "Put another wrinkle in your birthday suit."

You got off easy.

Looks delicious, too.

That turned out great! After some (bad) experiments with cakes from scratch, I'm a box mix girl all the way!

Happy Birthday!!!
