I know, I’m just terrible at keeping this site updated. I used to make fun of my mom for her computer/technology illiteracy, but now it’s starting to pass ME by! I usually keep my Facebook fanpage a little more current, so look me up and ‘Like’ it! Make sure to look for “Short & Sweets” (with ampersand… the other one is a different company).
I’ve been keeping pretty busy being a Mommy to my little guy the past couple years (still doing cakes and cake bites on the side). It’s definitely a full-time job, but my favorite role to date. It’s no surprise that I would pour all of my best efforts into his birthday celebrations. It’s kind of my way of saying, “Yay! I survived an entire year!” haha Here is the cake I made for his most recent birthday. My nephew’s birthday is just a few days away from his, so I combined their birthdays into one party. Hence the “2″ and “8″ candles. No, I’m most definitely not old enough to have a 28-year-old son! That is an actual scrolling LED screen that read “HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAYKOB & IAN!!!” It was an experiment in mixed media and I loved it! I don’t know how many times I had to tell people that day, “YES! That is really a cake!!”
To serve the other 90+ guests, I made cake-in-a-jars in the 100 baby food jars I had saved up over the past year.
