I'm much too frugal to pay for an over-priced, under-flavored store-bought birthday cake, so I always make them at home (often to my kids' dismay!) They beg & plead for the cakes they find in those laminated catalog pages at the bakeries - loaded with plastic figurines of their favorite characters. However, by the time I've taken the characters & put my own Mommy Magic on it, the end result always leaves a smile on the kids' faces. :o) This is the cake we enjoyed at Luke's 7th birthday party this weekend.
I love you so much, Luke! Thanks for making me a mom. I cannot believe you are already SEVEN! It has been a pleasure to watch you learn & grow & become such an amazing young man!
