Awhile back, my mom told me a cute story of how my grandma had made my brother a "1/2" year birthday cake. So when my munchkin's 6-month birthday rolled around on Wednesday, I thought about doing the same. But, after a day of reading books at the library (read: trying to keep him from chewing on books at the library) and feeding the ducks at the park, I kind of forgot about the whole cake thing until on our way home. So, I stopped at Kroger and saw the cutest little cakes -- and only $3.99!
I picked up one, along with a blue gel icing tube (pen?) and some star candles.
I cut the tip of the gel tube off at an angle so it would be easier to write on the side of the cake. Surprisingly, it was super easy and didn't drip.
Then, I cleared sprinkles off the top and wrote his age -- "1/2" :)
Cute, huh? After dinner we added the candles and let E stare at it for awhile before blowing them out, cutting him off a piece, and letting him smash it to bits. Luckily he didn't put any of it in his mouth, though his clothes (and us) were covered.
Cheers to many many more wonderful months ahead, sweet boy!
