>Many of you don’t know about my birthday cake I made in April. It was sad. Very sad. I am definitely not a cake decorator! (Make that just cake froster in general.) Here it is in all its drippy glory. It WAS delicious however!
I even named this photo “40th b-day cake disaster” or something like that.
Well, I thought I’d just make a 13 x 9″ pan cake with my son and decorate it for 4th of July, to look something like this.
I baked the cake, frosted it during naptime, and cut up all the strawberries and blueberries. I even showed the photo to my son so he could process it internally during naptime and visualize what we were attempting.
It began like this:
Not too bad, right? Then he began throwing strawberries on the cake. Next, he picked up the containers of fruit and dumped them, even while I was pointing and describing what we needed to be doing. (I interject and make a comment that an author in a book I was looking at recently compared toddlers to cavemen…)
Well, I contemplated moving the fruit to the appropriate sides, but it was all stuck to the frosting. So, we adapted, and Mommy helped to create a reverse USA flag. Please don’t call me unpatriotic. Flexible would be a better word.
How are you spending your 4th of July?
