Last night my son Griffin asked me if today could be Sliders Birthday. Who is Slider?
World .. meet Slider ..
Normally most of Griffin's requests usually require me to do something that is absolutely out of the question .. did I tell you my kids think I am a millionaire? Mom .. can you take us to the waterpark like every single day this summer?? Can we both get cell phones, and Ipads and whatever else it is they make these days ??
So when he asked if we could make Slider a birthday cake I thought heck why not?
Look at this childs hair. He refuses to get it cut.
I had to tame the Martha Stewart side of me .. she luuurrrkkks inside. While making this cake with Griffin I kept thinking of all the great turtle cake ideas out there on baking sites and blogs. I imagined myself crumb coating and laying a perfect peice of fondant over Slider's cake .. oh Slider ... you are going to be so darn happy.
This is what we ended up with.
I can't believe I'm showing you all this.
Now does that look like a turtle to you??
But you know what .. Griffin was so darn happy and proud of that cake. It makes me happy when my kids are content with simple things. If I have made a memory for him it is well worth it. Fugly cake and all.
Please excuse the sentiment of this post .. I think I am hormonal this week.
