You remember this monstrosity?
Well, its been a whole entire year. That would be 365 days. The time just flies by, no? Anyways, this past weekend was once again Big D.'s alma mater weekend retreat*, combined with a birthday, a Bar Mitzvah as well as a cake order stuck in there....which results in one big fat huge Bake-A-Thon.
So as usual, I feel the need to share my craziness with you
and the rest of the wide, wide, world (name that children's book!):
First up, we have :
A Caramel Cake
A Caramel cake
And a caramel cake!
Is it just me, or do I hear an echo in here?
Next, we have the lovely, lovely Cake Pops:
And their humble cousins, The Cake Truffles:
And last on my list, but definitely first in my heart:
It was Big D.'s birthday! And what better way to celebrate your birthday, then to have 150 people sing you happy birthday? I'm awesome, I know.
This is the third year in a row that I made a Strawberry Shortcake for Big D.'s birthday, and I gotta say, this one is definitely my favorite. For the full story on Big D.'s
boring consistent birthday cake choices, you can get the full story here.
Now go have yourself an awesome week, while I catch my breath!
*Can I just say how awesome it was this past weekend? Besides the fact that the E.'s did an unbelievable, draw dropping job putting everything together, it was amazing to see everyone! It was so much fun to sit back, catch up, and laugh together with old friends! And I was so honored to have so many people come over to me and tell me that they actually *read* my blog! And here I was thinking I just yap on and on to my mother and Big D.! I better start being careful what I say! Although, we are all friends here...but I just want to say thank you! It's nice to know you are out there! And I just won an award for ending every sentence in a paragraph with an exclamation point! Yay!
