remember when i said i was going to make a UGE mess last week? i did. i attempted to make a version of this cake for our Young Women in Excellence. 3 hours later i got all the layers done, frosted in between and stacked, just waiting to be frosted on the outside when caleb really needed to eat. i sit down for a sec and next thing i know, claire was saying "yum!" and downing the cake. by the time i got to her, she was covered and the top layer was off and smashed. i should have known better than to leave it accessible, but alas, i didn't act on it. so a red velvet cake from costco was the substitute, and i must say it was quite a good one :)
happy 3 months tomorrow little (big) bubba! you are such a joy, we are such a lucky family to have you around!
