I have been fretting over Baby B's birthday cake for weeks now. I always do a cake of whatever they are really into at the time. For Sweet P's first birthday it was the Baby Einstein caterpillar. For Little M it was a cake of Sweet P's face--he has always adored her! But for Baby B I really couldn't think of what to do besides one very inappropriate idea. I am his favorite thing and Sweet P suggested another face cake, but I just didn't really feel like doing that.
So, I've been all over the internet and I borrowed 4 or 5 books from the library, but nothing felt right! I know, way too much effort and thought over a cake that the recipient won't remember and the rest of us will just gobble up anyway. But for whatever reason, it's a big deal to me.
Today's Joyful Moment came when I was sharing my woes with some friends and one suggested a "Thumb Cake". And I just knew that that was it. You know when everything just clicks and feels totally right? That's what I'd been waiting for, and now I had it. I still can't believe I never thought of that since his thumb is always in his mouth, but I am so glad my friend did! Now, I have to figure out how to make it without making a cake that's too freaky to eat!
Wishing you all Joyful Moments that deserve two thumbs up!
