Sorry all for my absence - no, I did not fall off the face of the earth! Today we celebrated the boys' birthdays (1 and 3). We had lots of friends and family and had a wonderful time celebrating with everyone!
This has meant a whirlwind week of cake baking, decorating, cleaning, small home repairs, boys' professional photos, outfit selection, etc. Needless to say this feels like the first time I have had a moment to sit in days. But the boys and I had great fun making preparations and we enjoyed sharing our efforts with everyone today.
Above are the boys helping to measure and "mix." Does this add time to my baking? Yes, but it's so worth every precious minute.
Clark's 3 year old crayon cake. This was the first time I had worked with a sponge/roll-up type cake. I made two types - chocolate with chocolate frosting rolled in the middle and vanilla cake with orange marmalade and orange buttercream rolled in the middle. They were both tasty.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!
