The birthday cake from hell

We are celebrating Girls 10th birthday today. That means 7 girls between the ages of 9 and 10 running through the house. It's been fun(note sarcasm)

Girl and I started working on her elaborate birthday cake at 8:30 this morning. We baked three layers and after they were cooked we cut the layers in half and put pudding in the middle. Then we frosted them all different colors.....and then came the stacking. We bought dowel rods and stuck those in the bottom layer. We put the second layer on top, and then did the same thing with the third layer. I turn around to grab some more frosting and the cake comes tumbling down. We now have 30 minutes until everyone arrives.....shit. Girl picks the top layer up with her fingers and I start laughing. Thats all you can do at this point. Host Mom comes to the rescue when she pulls this cake stand thing out of her ass. This would've saved us a lot of trouble. Heres the finished product..hopefully it tastes good.

We've already had plenty of drama. Including who gets what pajamas, who's sleeping where, who gets boy as their pretend "boyfriend", what movie were watching, what game we are playing, blah blah blah.

When I was their age, nothing mattered to me. I didn't care how anybody dressed, what car they drove, how many presents they bought me for my birthday. I just had fun and played with everybody...everybody was my friend. It's so true when people say kids are growing up to fast. It's sad, really.

Oh wait! A girl just came in crying....and the fun begins again.


  1. Sounds like you have your hand full! The cakes came out very cute though. I hope your night is better!

  2. Yikes! Seven 10-year-olds - I'd be hiding in the closet!

    I think the cakes look adorable - you did a great job salvaging them! (I'm sure they're yummy - wish I could have some!)

    Ummm, enjoy your evening? :)

  3. I bet they loved the cakes! They're nice and colorful, that's for sure.
