Little Bear’s big day, part 1
My sweet little boy is now a big three year old boy! I’ve spent the week decorating for Christmas, cleaning the house in preparation for his party, and baking, baking, baking. His birthday was Thursday when we celebrated as a family and I made a test run of the fire truck cake. I was fairly pleased with the results. Here are some of the highlights from his big day. I’ll post the party pics in a separate entry.
Of course he got a fire truck for his birthday!
Notice the writing on the shirt? Just too perfect!!
After we’d eaten cake, Little Bear looked at the leftover cake and said, “Fire truck cake broken!” with a horrified look on his face. It was yummy, though.
If you love chocolate cake (and chocolate frosting) like I do, you can’t go wrong with the recipe on the back of the Hershey’s cocoa box. Beware, if you use the Special Dark variety, the cake will be almost black. I opted for the traditional style this time.
As for the baking, baking, baking-I made this fire truck cake, sugar cookies for school, sugar cookies for the playgroup Christmas party, gingerbread men cookies for the party, and another fire truck cake. I do love baking, but the clean-up is killing me!!
