After I was married and had my boys, I didn’t have my own birthday cake for a long time. I mean, we had our three birthdays in four days. There’s only so much cake you can eat. And when they were little, of course the boys wanted their own cakes on their own days.
Since my birthday is in the middle, I very graciously agreed to give up my day so we could celebrate on April 26th and April 29th with first Mickey Mouse and truck cakes, then He-Man and Ninja Turtle cakes, and later baseball, hockey, basketball, football, soccer, even bowling-themed cakes. (We live near Chicago, so the pictured dream cake includes Bulls basketball, Bears football, Cubs baseball and Blackhawks hockey. But we still would have needed two separate cakes 🙂 )
Then one year my dear neighbor, Evelyn, took pity on me and got me my very own little chocolate cake with flowers on it. Pure bliss…
