My birthday is a week from today (no gifts please) and all I want this year is to bake a cake with my son Oliver. He loves to "help" in the kitchen and he's recently been obsessed with the Birthday Cake episode of Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood (if you have a toddler and don't know this PBS show, you must check it out). And then, of course, there's the consuming of the cake.
Here's a little wishful thinking...
Oh, if only a 2-year-old had the dexterity for a needlepoint cake! (If only I had that dexterity!)
Basically I wouldn't be able to let the kid touch this gorgeous confection. By Kara's Party Ideas.
This is closer to what I'm going to get...and what I'll be totally thrilled with. We'll see if Oliver has inherited his father's color-palette-assembly talents. From Sprinkle Bakes.
