Happy Birthday Honey!

My sweetie pie husband's birthday is today! Ten years of celebrating birthdays together ... and he's still cute & fun & I absolutely adore him. I wanted to make his birthday really special, so I have spent the entire morning making multiple rounds of cakes for this cake. It called for a special homemade cake recipe, but I figured a pillsbury cake mix can't be that different. Right? Yeah, um ... when I finally finished the fourth layer & was starting to try and move them, they crumbled to bits! Which of course the kids didn't mind ... yummy cupcake pieces for all! Seriously, my kids think I'm the greatest Mom ever. Cake before lunch time today! LOL.
We're going to go with this yummy cake now instead. And since he's taking a half day for work (he worked 6 days last week), we're going to mail off the apron & book to his sister (a very delayed wedding gift ... hopefully she likes it). I made the apron using this tutorial and then the pocket (enlarged 125%) from here. The best part is that I was able to make myself an apron with the extra fabric ... love it! :)Sorry the photos are so lacking, it's very snowy/cloudy here today. Hopefully some snow is in the forecast today or tomorrow! We still haven't gotten to build a snowman yet!


  1. So sorry the cake didn't work out. I can't wait to see how PW's cake tastes.

    Nothing like a deadline (or one's that past!) to get you going on projects!! :)

  2. Ah, yes... the best laid plans. At least you got a tasty snack! :) You'll definitely have to let us know how the PW cake turns out. I've been eyeing that one.

    Fun apron! Love the fabrics.

  3. bummer about the cake. but cake crumblies are scrumptious anyway. ;) hope you get to build that snowman and have a snowball fight!


I love comments! Thanks for sharing! :)
