A very sweet little boy, one of my great nephews, turned four this past week and the family celebration was Sunday. When asked what kind of cake he wanted (decoration, not flavor), he wanted a baseball cake. On a recent trip to Michael's with a 40% coupon, I found a Wilton cake pan that make a ball shaped cake. The layer cake pans sit on a ring to hold them level while they bake.
There are enough relatives to require two cakes if I'm not using a larger pan. I don't mind making two and usually switch out the flavors. In this case, one cake was yellow batter, the other chocolate. The space to the right of the greeting was where I intended the candles to be placed.
skateboard cakes. In this picture the boys are picking out which specific sugar mold baseballs they want before Alex blows out the candles.
My brother-in-law, Alex's grandpa, isn't fond of cake and since Sunday was also Easter, I made one of my frequent holiday pies, a lemon meringue. My husband returned from a week long business trip Sunday morning and his welcome home gift was chocolate chip cookies with pecan pieces in them.
It has really smelled good in my house lately, but I am about to drop into a sugar coma.
Carrot or celery stick, anyone?
