The Birthday Cakes

My daughter had two birthday cakes  this year.

Okay, one of them was not technically a “cake”, but it was just the same to her and better for us.

The other one was an actual cake that she asks for every year.   She always wants a strawberry cake with strawberry filling.  She usually asks for strawberry icing, but she didn’t say this year.  I went ahead and used the cream cheese frosting I had on hand.  She did not complain.

She wanted her name on the cake this year.

I bought one of those colored icing tubes.  I bought the tips to use on it.

I practiced making letters, before the trying it on the cake.  I spent twenty minutes writing her name on the cake.

Then, I left her alone with the sprinkles for a few minutes.  Here is the result:

When I asked her why, she said she did not know where else to put them.

She loved the cake.  She said I made “the best cake in the world.”   Of course, it could have been because she knew I was not thrilled with the sprinkles covering my hour or so of work.
