There was no kneading involved, but I did try out a new cake recipe today, a Cinnamon Roll Cake and yep, it’s exactly what it says, a 9×13 inch homemade cinnamon roll. Yeah, it’s totally drool producing and will be put into the regular recipe population that hangs out above the microwave in my kitchen. You can check it out here. Mine isn’t as pretty as the one on the website, but who can take time to take photos when something smells so wonderful??
It’s brought to my attention that I haven’t blogged about Susannah’s birthday party. Thank you, dear daughter, for putting a guilt trip on me. I guess that because I blogged about her actual birthday, her party was a few days later, blogging about the party never occurred to me. My bad.
The party was a huge success, thanks to the Herculean imagination and efforts of Bigmommy. The Papoose wanted a rainbow birthday party and that’s what her mommy pulled off, making it look easy.
There was a Rainbow Cake
Six SEPARATE layers, BTW, to go on Rainbow Plates. There were games, Pin the Cloud on the Rainbow and Musical Cloud
There were presents and balloons!
Given Bigmommy’s balloon phobia, she went above and beyond. There were friends and streamers
And sisters and cousins, an aunt and uncle
(This is Babydiva’s mommy, Babymama, with newest cousin, Charlotte, on board! She is expected to arrive the first week in August.
We can’t forget the Queen’s chair or the Rainbow Arch!
But you know what was the absolute, best fun of the whole thing? Being a family, all together, aunts, uncles, moms and dads, grandma and grandpa and cousins, with more than enough love and friendship to go around.
