On Elizabeth & Fishy Cakes

This little person turned 2 years old today!!!

It seems like such an incredibly long way from this:

While my other two speaking children decided within a week after their last birthdays what kind of cake they wanted this year, Elizabeth has waffled around on me for the past month or so. First it was cow. I had a bit of trepidation about how my artiste skills would hold up to creating a cow, but was assured it was a cinch.

Then she decided giraffe. I began to imagine how to best create the long necked thing from chocolate cake. I had a pretty good idea of what direction I would take when she scrapped that idea, too.


And it stuck. Then she had to decide what color fishy she wanted. It changed several times, but finally, after I had the icing mixed up, I asked one last time.

'Yea-woah. Geen'

I sent her to nap, dropped in the food coloring, and began painting the cake. When all was said and done, this is what we stuck candles in:

It's gone now. I miss it. A lot!

But I got to keep this:

Happy Birthday, Sunshine!!
