I didn’t forget the birthday pictures.
I still can’t believe how fast the girls are growing. I’m sure all parents feel this way,
They worry all year about their birthday cakes. I’ve learned not to listen until the actual week of the birthday because the desired cake will switch seven hundred times between now and the next birthday.
Anna settled on Hello Kitty this year. I learned how to make marshmallow fondant.
Claire wanted a monkey cake.
The chocolate marshmallow fondant was a total failure,
While Hello Kitty looked fine, the chocolate layered monkey cake with bannana filling was very well received. Now there’s only nine more months to figure out next year’s cakes.
Oh, and speaking of nine more months, do not conceive this coming week if you don’t like throwing birthday parties the week after Christmas. I’m just sayin’.
