Oh hi there! I was so engaged in all the mushiness, and sweet nothings, and husband adoring anniversary that I almost forgot all you loverly peoples.
This weekend is complete chaos. Apparently some time ago I agreed to make cakes for J's kid's joint birthday party. Specifically the same kind of name cakes I made for Sugarbaby's first. I maintain that I might have been under the influence of a few glasses of vino when I agreed to this.
So the party is tonight at the local pool at 8pm. Which is way past Sugarbaby's bedtime so she will be missing the festivities. But the boys and I are going to have a blast with the cakes in tow. I started on the cakes about six yesterday evening. Everything was going swimmingly. The frosting was smooth, the decorating looked cute. I was very pleased. That is until I got to the smash cake. I mixed up the colors, applied them and stepped back. It looked like a damn Christmas cake! Way too red and waaaaay too green. So I called J and told her what I thought. She said use your best judgement, I don't care what they look like if you're okay with it. A lot of help she was!
I tell you people I tried really really hard to just leave it the way it was and not be such a perfectionist. The design was fine, the writing precise, the cake was CUTE! It just looked like something along the lines of Merry 1st Christmas. Yes, I made a cake for Baby Jesus.
The OCD in me took over and I called the hubby to order more ingredients to redo the smash cake. About 10 o'clock last night I finally finished. It isn't as perfect as the first one, but the colors are sooooo much better. I would have taken photographic evidence for your consideration of the two cakes, but the Nikon finally made it to the doctor and isn't expected out of CICU for a good 6 weeks.
And since the camera is in the hospital, I won't be able to take any pictures of tomorrow's festivities. Ya know, the Monster's 6th birthday? But rest assured we will be partying all day. And don't forget, that is one more cake I have to bake.
By Monday I expect to be completely exhausted. Weekends totally wear me out. Who's with me?
