First, we eat cake and ice cream for breakfast on birthday mornings. We love this. It is one of our favorite traditions.
Second, the birthday person gets to chose or design the cake. Kate, whose birthday opens this happy season, chose the same baby carriage cake that she chose last year (bless her!).
Third, though I come from a family of "can-do" cake decorators who can create anything with cake, a knife, a piping bag and some butter cream icing, I am forever grateful for a cake pan that provides a shape with which to work. A paint-by-numbers approach to cake decorating!
For the first time in my children's lives, the cake was ready an entire day and a half ahead of time!
So...welcome to Birthday Season!
We're thankful for all of the lives we get to celebrate!
