here goes nothing

Today, our oldest little lady turns two.

TWO!

And today is the day I face the challenge that billions of parents have faced through the ages...the day so many of us hope for and also dread...

Today is the day I attempt to make a birthday cake that is supposed be recognizable as a particular item or character.

Let us pray.

I would definitely like my own elmo cake. But only if it is a food network extreme cake and can giggle and move.

I'll be making lobster for dinner tonight, very Bridget Jones-ish. Let's hope it's not a blue soup disaster (however, if that means Colin Firth will come knocking on my door, a disaster will be A-OK).

I always try to make mine look like cupcakes. I am pleased to say that I have been successful almost 100% of the time.

I totally thought you were going to say potty training.

Good luck. The rocket cake (that my Little Einstein still regularly requests in photo form) was a blessing from the cake gods. Prayer to them works! Also, you must check out cakewrecks.blogspot.com. It will hand you a great laugh. Promise.

I respectfully request a photo (although I know you never post photos!). I hope her birthday was fabulous!

Hey, those pans that make the cake in the right shape and you just decorate it with stars in the right color are foolproof. Not that you have the time to shop for that...

The word verification is aftoand.

I love your professor's quote about Jesus going to law school and practicing criminal defense.
