Happy Un-Birthday Princess

We were invited to a birthday party. I asked Princess if she wanted me to make a gluten free cake to bring with us. She's not much of a cake eater so I wasn't surprised when she said no. That was all fine and good until the cake came out. I messed up big time. I should have just made the cake...but I didn't and Princess cried and she cried.

I told her that we would make a cake when we got home. We baked it and frosted it and I was ready to cut it and eat it, but Princess had other plans. How can you make a cake and not decorate it?!



And of course if there's a candle it has to be lit. I sang a beautiful Happy Un-Birthday to Princess and she was ecstatic. You're probably wondering how she liked the cake. Uhm...yeah...she didn't. I'm still baking a cake for the next party we attend.

Shady Lady said...

Wow! Really? Thanks, Rachel. I appreciate that. It's especially nice to hear when I'm having a rough day. (Not at all Princess related.)

What an incredibly sweet mom you are.!

And I'm thinking this is so cool...I might have an un-birthday for me tomorrow. :0)

How awesome! You're a great mom!

Shady Lady said...

You are too sweet, Sheila! After looking in those sad brown eyes I think anyone would have baked her anything she wanted. ;)

Sheri said...

You rock Mom.

And that cake looks too pretty to eat, I love the decorations. :)

Shady Lady said...

Sheri, Princess really does like the baking/cooking part much more than the eating part. She would have likely been fine with leaving it as is. ;)

Aw, how fun! We would have made a gluten free cake for Princess if she came to one of our birthdays this week. I make all natural, from scratch ones because one of our friends has a food sensitivity (and because I cook that way 95% of the time anyway!).

And I agree you're a fabulous mom!

Do you read the Gluten-Free Goddess's blog? I like it, but I haven't made any of the recipes. I like to look at them and salivate, though. :)
