Happy Birthday to Me!


I know I haven't been a very faithful blogger lately, and I'm sorry for that. It's been a busy summer! Between vacations, visitors, and virtually anything else you can think of, I haven't had any time to bake. And today, my birthday, was no different, just a wonderfully busy day with the family.

So this post isn't about recipes or fancy photos, it's about 1 thoughtful statement and 4 amazing kids who backed it up.

"No one should have to make their own birthday cake."

And I didn't!


One boxed cake mix...


Some canned icing...


Lots and lots and LOTS of sprinkles...


And, voila! The most beautiful cake I've ever seen!


Funfetti to boot!


Got a kick out of this one...no, the cake IS NOT on fire, there were just A LOT of candles (and a very excited grandma in the background).

I love my kids! They even cleaned up. (sort of)  ;)


Enjoy!
