Sam turned 2 yesterday!
I always think the year between ages 1 and 2 goes the fastest!
I wanted to make him an awesome cake but didn't want to eat it all ourselves so we invited all the cousins! They helped us put a nice big dent in that massive cake.
Then like I said before, he kept trying to blow them out after they were out!
The funniest part about me spending all day making him an awesome cake?
He does even like to eat it.
I used m&m’s to make the borders, and I cut out the number 2 from a black Wilton sugar sheet.
Then for all the cars, I used the butter cream transfer technique that I used for Luke’s Avenger cake last summer. I just did it for a bunch of little cars and trucks. If I were to do it again, though, I would skip the butter cream transfer technique and just draw cars and trucks on the cake itself. It was tricky getting them to stick to the side of the cake and they were so small that they melted really fast and were hard to work with. I do have to admit that I’m pretty proud of my cake! My kids may not get a big party every year, but they will always get an awesome cake made with love!!
I did take videos of Sam opening his presents—he kept saying “Ohhhh Woooowwww!!”
Happy Birthday munchkin! We sure are glad you are around!
