we've been celebrating a birthday around here, this week. celebrating our youngest son.
which also means, i've been baking like a fool.
yes, i mean that literally--like a fool.
i baked two 9 inch rounds for a traditional two layer birthday cake. (i don't really like cake and i really don't like sheet cakes....sheet cakes are not festive, in my mind)
that being said, i should have baked a sheet cake.
i let the cakes cool and then began frosting them. the rounded top required a lot more frosting than i had originally figured. all frosted, i carefully covered the cake with the glass dome. i could decorate with swirly lettering after i had cut up two cantalopes and four pounds of strawberries.
this is what i found.
www.cakewrecks.com has nothing on me.
so, then i baked two dozen cupcakes, because i really couldn't put candles in that cake. it would be overkill, right?
then yesterday i made another 48 cupcakes for our little guy's class. and now today i am baking another 48 cupcakes for his baseball team and their families.
oh, and all those little cupcakes are decorated to look like baseballs....if you do the math (i'll save you the trouble) that makes 120 baseball cupcakes.
um, i thought i didn't bake.
oh. yeah. i don't bake WELL.
that's all i've got....i hear the timer going off. sheesh, i hope it's the timer and not the fire alarm.
love and light and cake
