Someone warn the kid

Ok so every year at this time I get in a mood... Awwww, summer is almost over.... Yeeeaaahhhhh summer is almost over... then we have this.. 2 birthdays a week apart.. Monster 1 turned 16 out all vehicles in a 50 mile radius of Southern Ohio and my baby boy D turns 15 next week.. I still feel the pain of delivering him but that's okay.... all the pain was worth it.. Okay so I went to K-rogers today and got balloons and some flowers to welcome in their birthday... make the house look a little different than the normal chaos...

Here comes the stress every year for having a simple little boy that does not require too much... his cake.. Every year I ask what kind of cake he wants... I always hold by breath in hopes that he wants some fancy Cake Boss cake and I can pay out the nose for it.... Oh no no...not my simple little thing...he wants my cake.. "I just want your cake..." That means..classic yellow with classic chocolate icing.. I cringe..break out into a sweat and don't get sleep for days...knowing what's coming... I even watched a cake show the other night to get inspired... Okay,,so maybe if I would use a mixer not a whisk and my nails would have been filled in and if I would have used Crisco instead of the off name Kroger brand of oil I would have better luck.. my problem.. I don't exactly exactly measure right... I don't exactly time it like I should..never have and never will.. G always gets on me cause I don't time stuff... I throw it in and watch til I think it's done... isn't that what all good cooks do...? Yes? Are you shaking your heads right about now...?Anywho... I can bake the cake I just can't decorate the cake... This year I tried a double decker...yeah my mistake...Mr. C and D are in the den with me and I am trying to explain blogging... C asks if I don't have something else to waste time on.... Mr. C thinks this looks like a big boy..I tried to ice it... and welll llll NOOOOOO!
I didn't take a picture of the back cause it is down right hideous.... I walked back into the kitchen to find the back side has falled over... I wanted so much to post a falling rock sign... I explained to him that I am not a baker I am a 911 dispatcher... Give me a accident, I can handle it.. give me a SWAT call out with guys with guns.. I can handle it... Give me the task of making my baby boy his favorite birthday cake and I am a mess.... Where is Martha, Ree or Rachel when I need them... Cathy

Oh well, at least you tried. I don't do double deckers. I do them in a 13x9 pan. Box cakes are the only kind I do. But yes, I measure and I use a timer. Can't do it any other way.

Okay, step away from the cake pans. From now on, you're only allowed to make bundt or sheet cakes. No layers for you!

And sorry sweetie, but with baking, it's imperative to both measure and time!

Justine :o )
