The Cake of All Cakes


I am sure Mrs. Wallace will have her own post about Mini Me’s first birthday party, but I wanted to take a second and give her some props for the cake she made. She was determined to make her train cake despite all of the odds stacked against her. She didn’t have the amount of time she initially allotted for the cake, due to Mini Me’s impromptu hospital stay for an infection that zapped the PTO she planned to use to make the cake. That meant she had to make the cake the night before the party after she had spent a long day at work. With the help of her mother, sister,  and best friend she was able to not only cook all the cakes for her train, but also add all the icing and get them decorated and arranged.

Now, you may be wondering what I was doing during all of this hard work. I had been doing hard manual labor installing shelves and other things for the party all week and that night I mowed the lawn in 100+ degree weather. So when it came time to make the cake I just sat and watched and gave some nice constructive criticism to keep everyone motivated haha.

In all seriousness, it was a really great cake and a great party. I am very thankful that so many people came to celebrate Mini Me’s first birthday. If he could speak English, and not his own native language he has created, he would thank everyone individually. :)
