Another Late Birthday Post
My birthday isn't the only one I didn't blog about! I also forgot to blog about Devin's birthday! He recently turned 8 years old! I wanted to tell you a little bit about the cake. I had planned on decorating a cake for him, but then I thought of how much work that was, and how stressful it was for me to have to try to get everything just perfect. Then my coworker suggested letting him decorate his own cake. Brilliant! I asked what color icing he wanted as the base color, and he said red. Then I asked what other colors he wanted, and he said blue and black. Ok, no problemo. I mixed up the icing colors and couldn't find any piping bags. Drats. That's ok, I figured, just use ziplock bags! I've done that before with mixed results. Well, this time we had disastrous results! After blowing the seams on 2 large ziplock bags (and one of them was me, and I wasn't squeezing too hard!) we tried a small sandwich size bag. Nope. Popped.
I wasn't going to waste any more bags trying the same thing again, so I apologized to Devin and told him he'd have to use spoons and knives to spread on the icing! He didn't seem to mind too much, and the cake still tasted great!
P.S. You'll notice there are only 4 candles. That's all we could find in the 'junk' drawer. Please tell me we're not the only ones that disorganized. David told him each candle was worth 2 though. :-)
But 8 years old already? Where does the time go?
