The cake decorating this year was a bit slower than usual. Luke celebrated his sixth birthday with chocolate cupcakes at Grandma's house and Sam was away at school for his. But we did celebrate the girl's birthdays at home…. so of course Joe pulled out his creative skills. (or should I say skillz)
One of them needs a bit of explaining. I'm sure you can guess which…..
Did you figure out that first one?
It's really a zebra booty. There's an in house joke involving zebras. I don't even really know how it got started. I think it may have been when Jade started writing goofy things like "zebra food" on the grocery list. Or "feed the zebras" on my to-do list. She's a funny one, that girl.
Joe scoured the internet for zebra pictures and found one that he thought would make the perfect cake. When it was presented, Jade laughed so hard she had tears in her eyes.
It was awesome.
I should also give a shout out to this book for making our birthdays dairy-egg-gluten free. I didn't think we could pull it off…. but we did! The cake recipes were delicious. But most of all, they didn't stick to the pan. Which is really important when your making cute owl shaped cakes… or uhm, zebra butts.
Do any of you have silly taditions in your house? I'd love for you to share…
