birthday

so i try to make a "fancy" cake for each birthday.
and i make them from scratch.
that way i can avoid unnecessary ingredients that come in boxed cake mixes
and can use wheat flour as well.


so i spent ALL day the day prior to jonas' birthday prepping the cake.

only to find the wheat flour RUINED the cake and i had to start all over. argh!

jonas also made sure to tell people that his cake was all "scrumbled" and
"my mom doesnt know how to make cakes." thanks.

but i did end up with a FABULOUS lemon filling.. mmm. delish!

and jonas was sick all day and ended up just laying about being a slug.
in fact, we've all been sick, laying about being slugs.

jonas picked his birthday dinner which consisted of strawberries, jello, and hot dogs.
yum. dinner of champions.

and it all ended with eating cake and ice cream, opening gifts,
and playing with the new food cutting set.

actually.
i ate like 3 pieces because the kids refused to eat theirs.
after all that work! honestly. the nerve.

the cake did turn out awesome in the end. i always try to make mine look cool, usually they don't. ha.
jonas is so handsome, he's seriously gonna be a model. or a heart breaker. or an american idol. or something.
