Careful what you ask for!

The trouble with asking a 9 year old to decide what kind of cake she wants is that eventually, she will decide. It’s always a bit of a Russian Roulette type of request because she watches me all year – making fun filled cakes for perfect strangers and occasionally comments that I don’t ever do super fun cakes for the family. What she has overlooked is that there are only 3 birthdays per year in our home (since I don’t feel like making my own birthday cake – EVER!) and until this year, hubby led me to believe that his preference was an ice cream cake!! The additional tid-bit of info is that each of the girls also gets a cake for their class – as well as a cake for the house…and if there happens to be a party for the grand event – they also have a cake for THAT!! So – even though I do see her point (if I squint a little and turn my head to the right) her argument is a little weak. In any case – the kiddo is typically my easy going and easy to please kiddo who asks usually for super simple cakes. Last year was chocolate cake with boiled icing and fudge sauce – really??!! Heck yeah!! :) Not much for decorative value but dang it was yummy!!!

Anyway – where was I?? Oh right! I asked kiddo to pick a super cool cake this year. I asked her to pick something that I could work on for a bit and really “sink my teeth into”. I probably put too much emphasis on picking something that would be a challenge and fun for me cuz boy did she ever come up with a good one!! LOL She chose her cake yesterday and my head is still spinning over what to do about it cuz I may have met my match!! What did she pick you ask?? Well…none other than a Corpse Bride cake!!! (insert vintage horror-movie sound track *wah-wah-wah* noice here!)

I’ll let ya know how it goes…
