It was my son’s birthday over the weekend. With my husband away for his grandmother’s funeral, things got a little chaotic. Especially since his flight back landed the evening of my son’s birthday. To spoil him, we got some take-aways (his choice) and I bought a lot of doughnuts as a stand-in ‘cake’. That evening we were to sing for him…. but I couldn’t find the box I had put the candles in. So, sparkler it was.
It seemed to be a hit!
I am now trying to bake a chocolate cake for a small party for him tomorrow. With the heat, I wanted to wait until the temperature cooled down a bit. Forty degrees was a bit hot to be standing in front of a hot oven. Tomorrow morning the cake has to be transformed into a treasure chest. Wish me luck!
