Granted, this was the picture after the cake fell on the floor, almost hitting my baby and my failed attempt at chocolate ganache. My next thought...."I hate baking cakes!" after swearing to Eric that I will never make birthday cakes for my children. Ok, so this is not my finest blogging moment but I will admit the process of actually preparing the cake was soothing in my kitchen with some good music. I guess I thought just reading this book about amazing cakes would all the sudden make me an expert...not so!!! However, the cake itself was quite good from taking a few bites before dumping it into the garbage. So for now on I will stick to reading about cakes rather then baking them.
And a many thanks to my supportive husband who goes along with my ideas I get on a whim and silently sits through my rants after projects or ideas go awry and giving me a break from our sad baby. I sure love you!!
This is how Eric entertained Mia, by building her a fort in the living room to crawl through. I believe this is one of the most important roles of fathers...to really play with their kids! (Even if that means destroying the living room lol.)
