Happy Birthday my dear son

To my son

I remember the day you were born as if yesterday!
It was the day after thanksgiving and also a holy day for us - "kaushika ekadasi"
fasting on this day is auspicious and I fasted as you were to be born by C - section and surgery was scheduled. This day is day for devotees and sacrifices are so honored.
Guess that's why you were born with so many lovely traits.
I know you like to read my blog
So happy birthday to you my dear son.

And here I was so devious

Hubby hates cricut product and as I have back pain - could not go to Michaels or Walmart . I slept off at 12:00 and when I woke up no jolly seasons online .
Well today is my son's birthday and I decided to bake him a cake.
He plays drums so seems hubby said if I cannot bake him one he will get one with drums.
So here comes the devious part - I baked and I knew that everyday paper dolls has drumsbut nope doesn't show up in CDS or G search
My son searched on G I tell you and found quarter note[lol] I told hubby how all cartridges are on sale (after baking the cake) and he went and got me quarter note (and a 12 x 12 box) after grumbling. I told him how this way I can not only scrapbook but he gets cake too. And as my other son plays saxophone...
Hubby saw the cake machine up close and personal and asked me the names of all the machines[lol] and then said does this cake really justify [lol] and is there any machine I don't have
But he is happy with the cake an so is my son.
No fondant covering just butter cream frosting and very very light too on eggless chocolate cake . I left the crumb coating with the coating showing to give it a cookies and cream effect.

Not one of my better creations. And it took me the whole day.
My brain and body are not working well together and I was sloppy. The drums kind of stretched when I layered.
But my kiddo is happy and he want a scrapbook layout more so

I think your cake turned out so cute! I am so envious that you got Quarter Note. It is on my wish list but we do not have a Michael's that is close so I won't be buying this anytime soon. Happy birthday to your son!!

I checked Walmart at 1215 and they weren't selling online yet. By morning 4 legged friends and jolly holidays were sold out! Love the cake! I just made my first cake with the new mini for Thanksgiving. I can tell this machine is going to be fun!!
