Happy Birthday, Aerlys!
« on: June 12, 2014, 06:01:17 am »
Alas, I have no cake baking skills, but have a very happy birthday surrounded by munchkins and family!

Maybe you can have your cake and eat it, too.   ;)

I wasn't sure whether Aerlys would prefer a cake or a medieval feast for her birthday, so here's a little of both:



Happy birthday, Aerlys!

A very happy birthday - I hope you get properly spoiled by all the family :)
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

Happy! Happy Birthday!
I searched high and low and could not find the cake of your dreams, but I think I discovered where cake making reins supreme.

They even have your age right! :P
Have a great day, Aerlys!

Holy cow, Laurna, that cake is AMAZING! It looks like it came straight out of a real-life Candy Land game. We'll have to break out a ton of plates to pass that around.

And Evie's cake is certainly a real feast, too.

Thank you, everyone. This is my mom's last full day here with us, so we are going out tonight to the Rainforest Cafe (always a hit with the kids) and I'll probably enjoy some chocolate volcano cake. Otherwise, DD1 (who really is a whiz at cake decorating) would've made me a truly beautiful confection. DH has to work, but will meet us there tonight. Hopefully the traffic won't be too bad, considering several high schools in out area are having graduation ceremonies today.

So far, I've received about 5 homemade cards (including one made with with rose petals and Hello Kitty stickers), a nice snuggle with my youngest daughter, a cool paper castle constructed by my 8 y/o, complete with moat (no alligators), and lots and lots of hugs and kisses.

Those are the best presents of all!  :)

Happiest of birthdays and may it be the most recent of many!  :)

Those are some freaking awesome cakes, y'all, and I love the presents you've gotten, Aerlys.  :D

Aerlys, Your birthday gifts sound most precious, the best kind ever. If there had been a Rainforest Cafe when I was a kid, I would have driven my parents crazy to go there all the time.  As it was, I made sure we never missed the Tiki room every time we went to Disneyland. Parrots of every type and color are a favorite of mine.

Speaking of Disney, If you didn't recognize the pink castle above, It is Disney World's Sleeping Beauty Castle decorated special for their 1996 25th anniversary. That is the real castle. Looks like everything inside it should be made of cakes and candy. Evie, I can well see the boar's head feast on the main table inside the great hall, can't you? ;D
P.S. I am so glad that castle reverted back to its non cake form the next year. Or do you think some Giant came along and ate the frosting off of it. :o

Good grief! How in the world did they manage that?
