baking with the boys

It's been me and the boys the last couple days. Ellie is soaking up some special time with the grandparents. We will head that way tomorrow for the big fair!

I officially made the decision today that I'm not a baker. It's annoying. I have no desire to learn how to make it not annoying. Having said that, the boys and I had fun making cupcakes today... baking for fun is what I like. Not when I actually have to make something look pretty.

We were trying a recipe for a birthday party coming up and let's just say that I'm glad there was a cupcake rehearsal. The cupcakes sunk in the middle, had major muffin top and the icing, well, look at the awful green. Sorry but it looks a little like something I've seen in a diaper or two. And my hands are stained red after much scrubbing. I have decided that I'm not going to be a mom that makes her kids' birthday cakes and I am okay with that!

4 tellin' me what I want to hear!:

I've never made a birthday cake for my kids either. I feel it's more "special" to have a good 'ole bakery cake picked out with love by mom. At least that's what I tell myself!

Matt's "tradition", if you will, has been to take the girls on their birthday for breakfast and pick up their cake at the bakery. Sorta sweet. Get it, sweet??

I wasn't brave enough for the first birthday and I doubt I'll get any braver! I have a friend who does great cakes if you are interested check out her website at
