Cash and Little Miss’s birthdays are only one day apart. Luckily, Cash actually wanted to have a joint party with Little Miss. We had a Dora vs Star Wars party.
I made Cash’s cake using the Wilton Darth Vader pan. Beware of the black icing – everyone who ate this cake had purple teeth and lips!
I made Little Miss’s cake using the 2010 Wilton Dora pan. I don’t know if it’s discontinued or what but it was out of stock everywhere, even on Wilton’s website. Fortunately, I found a pan on eBay for a good price.
West had a farm themed birthday party this year. I made this cake using the Wilton Tractor cake pan:
This Easter we also celebrated my birthday and my mother-in-laws birthday because they were both within a few days of Easter. My mom brought my favorite birthday cake – strawberry. Cash claims not to like strawberry cake (impossible!) so I wanted to make a fun Easter dessert that he would like. I found the idea for these carrot garden beds in the April 2011 Family Fun magazine. They were quick and easy to put together and everyone at Easter dinner thought they were cute.
I made these ornament cupcakes for West's preschool Christmas party. I found the idea on the Wilton website.
West leaves the paper on and eats the cupcake out of it. You might think that would be less messy but it's actually not.
This layout is the boys on the rides at the Douglas County Fair, the fair that we went to for the tractor pull. Cash's serious motorcycle face cracks me up.
I used a sketch on this one too.
Another layout from a sketch. We went to the Tractor Pull at the Douglas County Fair in August and it was HOT.
Here's a layout I did of the boys' first trip to Chuck E. Cheese. I used a sketch – I'd give credit to the sketch designer but I can't remember where it came from.
