So I haven’t been around too much these days and I have some really good reasons as to why I’ve been M.I.A. One reason is that I’ve just been unusually busy doing the photography thing lately. Another reason is that it’s cold and I’m kind of lazy. But, my best excuse is that I’ve been working on masterpieces like THIS!
Let me explain…
Sunday was Jace’s 2nd birthday. Since I was busy with photo shoots and a wedding show all week, we decided to celebrate with pizza and cake on Saturday night. I realized that I would not have time to do everything myself, so I bought all the food, drinks, and presents…things I would normally try to make. But I decided that I could totally make the cake myself – heaven forbid we buy a cake at the store. Griff and I had big plans to decorate it with chocolate cookie crumbs and gummi worms; it was going to be awesome. My job was just to make the cake and get it ready for decorating.
The cake came out of the oven looking good – cooked perfectly in the middle (I struggle with the whole baking thing, so I thought I was pretty freaking fantastic at this point). I even let it cool off for awhile before I decided to slap the icing on (amazing restraint on my part). That’s when it all started to go downhill.
That b*tch of a cake started to tear, slide and crumble. I swear at one point I heard it laughing. I spend the next 15 minutes or so trying to patch that sh*t up, and it just got worse and worse. I honestly don’t know what happened, I mean, people do this every day, so I couldn’t figure out what went so horribly wrong.
After hearing the cursing and crying, Griff wandered into the kitchen. The look on his face went from shock, to confusion, back to shock. At one point, I seriously thought he was going to cry.
But then, his wheels started turning, and he said, “Can I eat it?”
Because he has sugar running through his veins just like his Mama, of course I said yes. And we dug in.
And then Ken walked in. And we saw the same look of shock and confusion on his face. And then he did what any good Daddy would do…
Best day of Griffin’s life. Poor Jace was sleeping and missed it all.
So that’s the story behind the photo of Ken you may have seen on Facebook the other day. From now on I’ll splurge on the $8.00 cake from Sobeys and not kid myself into thinking I can do it myself. Leave it to the pros, right Christine?!
So what about the new cake? Did Jace like it? You can be the judge…
It ended up looking just like my cake in the end 🙂
Happy Birthday Jace!
