We are ready to sing to you Dylan!!!

Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday, dear Dylan!
Happy Birthday to you!
Your cake is baked and decorated, Dylan!

I borrowed this great cake pan (thanks Kristine!). Lessons learned.... (1) A one piece cake pan does not necessarily make a one piece cake (2) Fondant is like play dough that dries out too fast (3) Licorice laces never straighten out enough to make good guitar strings regardless of what the nice lady at the candy store says (4) Standard spaghetti is not long enough be guitar strings (5) I don't know squat about guitars (6) Cake decorating is much harder than it looks (7) I should have video recorded this hilarious event.
We won't get to see Dylan on his actual birthday (March 28th), because he will be back at school. So we are celebrating early. Following a fun trip to Seattle with friends, Dylan will be coming to see us tomorrow! We're ready!

Your present is wrapped and waiting for you, Dylan!


  1. What an awesome cake!! I know what your present is Dylan cause I helped kill it!

  2. Wow! What a cake! It's too pretty to eat!

  3. You did a beautiful job on that cake.
