Indigo and her Birthday Cake



I know y'all can appreciate a cake post.


What was the first cake you remember from childhood? Was it a certain cartoon character, did your good old mom fashion it from a Wilton's pan?


Man do I remember some great cakes, from Scooby Doo to Rainbow Bright.


Please enjoy Indigo's 2nd Birthday pictures.



FIRST is the preparation, Dear Husband puts child in her seat and cake on the table...mother fetches camera






Commence to singing, wild smile appears on child's face





One......two......Three....Get ready for the candle little lady! Blow it out!!! PHEWWWWWWWWWWWW





Now FREAK OUT because of the smoke...didn't see that coming!





And the excitement ends. Everyone Enjoy this coming weekend.
Recipe for this cake involves your car and the grocery store, this one was store bought and delightful.

So sweet! That cake looks as big as she does! The first cake I can remember is the one when I turned 6 years old. (And that was a long time ago.) My uncles owned a bakery and one of them brought me home a gorgeous bakery cake with a picture of a princess on it. I thought it was the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen.

So your precious daughter is making me want to have children! Your blog is wonderful...and I'm so glad I found it. I don't know if I could have ended my evening in a better way.

That's quite a cake for a little lady who happens to be as sweet as her birthday cake. She probably won't remember this particular cake but you will :-). I hope you and your family have a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

Little Indigo is adorable! Well happy belated Birthday wishes to the cutest little girl. Hopefully the smoke did not tramatize her too much . . . you just never know what will startle a child. =)

BTW, if there was a way to send you bisque with shrimp over gouda grits, I would be all over it. Do you ever notice when you cook or bake and whatever it is turns out delicious you want to share with others to see if they like the dish as much as you? Heaven help them if they disagree though (laughing) =D.

Oh thanks Shandy,that bisque just looked divine! Here is my address....lol
