Mom's Birthday Party

  • My birthday was on the 21st of June.
  • With Daddy having a solo art show, we just got around to celebrating my birthday last night. This is totally fine by me. Things were pretty hectic at home with having company and of course I made a lot of food for his show. Daddy was BUSY!!!!!!!!
  • I called my mom and asked her if I could make my own cake for my party? She said, "Yes."
  • I got a Wilton big cupcake pan last year from my mom, and haven't had a chance to use it. I really wanted to. You've probably seen these before. This is my first version.
  • The top of the big cupcake is yellow cake and the bottom is chocolate.
  • I used the left over cake batter to make little cupcakes to fit around the big cupcake.
  • So I used not quite 2 boxes of cake mix. I did not make my cupcakes from scratch this time.
  • I used flour spray in the pan.
  • The base of the big cupcake was cooked for 12 minutes since it was more dense. Then I took it out of the oven, sprayed the top side, poured the batter in and cooked it for the rest of the time.
  • I'm glad I did it this way because I know they wouldn't of gotten done at the same time.
The top view looked a lot like a flower.
  • The hardest part was cutting it.
  • It was fun that everyone got two kinds of cake, and we could separate them if someone didn't like one flavor. There was frosting sandwiched between the top and bottom of the big cupcake.
  • My kids LOVE cake. My two year old saw the box before it was made and kept say, "Cake Mommy, cake!" He wanted some cake before it was even made.
  • My four year old got worked up when I was decorating the cake. I had it all decorated, put it in the kitchen, and he saw an empty plate. He said, "Mommy where's the cake?" I said, "Mica I ate it all. I was hungry." He said with sad puppy dog eyes, "Mommy you're not supposed to eat the cake! That's for everyone at the party!" He's a smart boy! I came clean when I saw that he was sad. 

  • I got many things for my birthday. I'm spoiled!
  • First, I got this cookbook! I've been wanting this cookbook because the kids like to help me in the kitchen, and I like them helping me in the kitchen! I love the Pudding Cups I made from this cookbook!
  • I got these cute little doughnut pans.
  • I figured that I could make all kinds of things in these. Not just doughnuts.
  • My ideas are spinning!
Another size too!

  • I got a rectangle baking stone. Before I only had a circle one.
  • I also got measuring spoons. I use them so much! They are always dirty. I'm always needing more.
  • I almost forgot that I got a knife sharpener. That should be really handy!
  • Other things I got that weren't baking items: Some good smelling stuff from Bath and Body Works, dusting slippers and Alice and Wonderland - the new one. I can't wait to see that!
