Can you guess?

An assortment of pans... plus...

A great helper (wearing a new pair of PJ's I just made for him)...

equals....



A dump truck birthday cake (with 5 candles)!!!
*

Or at least - my version of a cake HE saw in a Wilton cake decorating book featuring fondant and all kinds of fancy stuff. Believe me, MY version looks, ummm, welllll - very homemade compared to the one featured in the book, but it certainly is made with lots of love! And he was so excited about this cake that he declared that he wants the exact same cake for next year!

Nope - we didn't have a "party" - all this cake was for the 3 of us!!! I needed to make a double batch of cake in order to get the truck shape. Yes, there are left-overs even after lots of sharing with others.

All in all, he had a perfect and wonderful birthday. Just as it should be when you are at the Fun and Fantastic and Fabulous age of Five!!!
