Day 413: Earliest Joyful Moment Ever

Today's Joyful Moment came to me at 1:30 AM when I finished this:

Of course, this picture was taken several hours later when we lit the candles for Little M to blow out before serving it to all of his birthday party friends.  I started it at about 11:30 PM last night and then spent forever making the frosting black.  But I was really pretty happy with the results.  Of course, I took the picture from the angle with the worst mistake there at the bottom.  And you can't see the top where I made it look like the spider spun "Happy Birthday Little M" at the top.  Of course, "Little M" was replaced with his real name.  That was the part I was most proud of.

The rest of the day was full of Joyful Moments as we had another excellent birthday party.  HH made it so much fun and Little M has darling friends.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments complete with cake!

Here is a little helpful hint on tinting frosting black. Start with Chocolate frosting and add black food coloring. It makes a nice rich black color in three seconds. :)

Love you!

I'm super impressed with the cake. And I can't believe you can be so productive in the middle of the night! Did little m love it?

Our joyful moment was having an old friend from Brasil come visit us this afternoon. We hadn't seen him in 37+ years. It was so wonderful to catch up with him and listen to real portugues again.
