This time my Small Boy’s 5th birthday cake. He asked me for a pug cake, which I did by stenciling the negative space on a pumpkin carving template out of black rolled fondant. Then, he asked if he could have a bomb, just like the one I did for Lex’s birthday cake last weekend.
Yesterday was Felix’s birthday party. The pictures tell it better than I could.
There was cake. Chocolate chip cake, with vanilla frosting in the middle, and chocolate on the outside. And sprinkles. He may only be turning three, but the boy knows how he likes his cake. Why five candles? Three for him, the big white one is musical (why not?), and a pink one for my Mom, whose actual birthday it was yesterday (happy birthday again, Mom!).
There were presents. It took a village to open them.
He was suitably impressed with his cake.
And he blew out the candles like a pro.
But perhaps the highlight? He got to play with his hero, his idol, Big Brother J!
