Hey ya’ll!! How was your weekend?? Mine was busy, busy!! I just finished up another post about our almost 6000 mile road trip, so I wanted to pop over here and share a post too! Most importantly, my son Caleb celebrated his 14th birthday this weekend, so I had to talk about it!!
How is even possible that he’s 14? I really wish time would slow down. Now this sweet freckle-faced boy, Caleb, he is my “easy” child… he’s mild-mannered, sensitive, very kind and helpful, generous and always easy-to-please.
He never has elaborate requests for his cakes… and this year was no different. He wanted THIS:
He initially just asked for a cake like last year… another Oreo cake, except it had Legos :
I wrote very briefly about it here (and you can see how it had more than an inch of filling in the pic here!!). Anyway, he wanted the same thing. Then he saw one of those Reese’s Pieces cakes with the bag and the candy spilling out (the gravity-defying ones) and he asked if I could do that with Oreos.
Consider me challenged!! I’ve always wanted to do a gravity-defying cakes, so it was FUN for me! And easy!!
I made that Saturday night and we went out for pizza after lunch Sunday with our extended family for Caleb’s birthday lunch. I have tons of pics but I won’t bore you… here’s just one of Caleb with his half-eaten cake (and my nephews, my aunt, my pastor, my Daddy, and my brother in the background):
Now that I’ve told you about that… let me back up. I was supposed to have a quiet week… only one order plus my son’s cake. But then I blinked and somehow the week got really busy. It still wasn’t a bad week – just not what I was expecting.
Earlier in the week I baked for some peeps in my church – one had had surgery – another in the nursing home. I am not complaining about that… baking for the pure joy of sharing with others is such a huge blessing! I also had an order for one of these Killer Chocolate Cakes. Ya’ll.. it was all I could do to not eat the ganache before it made it onto the cake!
I also made this “3” Racetrack Cake for Harvey & Jamie – twins celebrating their 3rd birthday!! You can see their 2nd birthday cake here – it was a Paw Patrol themed party!! (same post as above!).
In addition to those, my husband who requested coffee cupcakes for work, and then… some Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes for my sister-in-law. My brother ordered them for her for their anniversary since he’s working off-shore right now! She almost cried she was so happy to get those cupcakes!! Gotta love that!!
Anyway… so that’s how I spent my weekend. That and tiling our bathroom floor… but that’s another story for another day. Have a great week ya’ll!
