Pea was lucky to celebrate his 5th birthday in Thailand this year, so Nana traveled to Wisconsin to make his birthday cake after we’d settled back in at home and nearly recovered from jet lag.

This year’s request: a castle.

Mom and I have a system now after years of this tradition.  We bake the cake during the day and assemble and frost it after the boys go to sleep.  This year we were finished by 9:30, which might be a record.  It was my favorite cake yet.  Fun to decorate and pretty adorable if I do say so myself.


This cake also had the bonus of lots of left-over licorice, white chocolate, and gum drops for me the kids to nibble on later.DSC_0027

Pea woke up the next morning and ran to check out his cake.  He loved it, of course.


After learning the dragon was not edible, he settled for assurances he could like the frosting off his feet.  He also somewhat hopefully inquired if the windows were made of cheese.  It was hard to tell if their being chocolate was a disappointment.  The kid likes cheese.

Another successful birthday cake created and consumed.  Thanks, Mom.
