Monopoly Madness

This last week was a busy week making not one, but two birthday cakes for my two kiddos. They shared a party, but had separate cakes, so all was well in their birthday world. It seems that there are only three requirements for a fun birthday... they get to pick their cake, they get presents, and they have fun with their friends. I think we covered all the bases.

Today, I am going to highlight my son's cake. Really he started designing this year's cake, about 90 minutes or so after last year's cake was eaten, but as with all kids his age (he's now 7), it changed a LOT over the year. First it was Mario Kart, then Angry Birds, then Mario again, and then I think Pokemon was in there briefly, then Angry Birds again. Just before I was going to start really working on the design, he decided to change it... again, this time to his very favorite board game, Monopoly!

I wanted to do something other than just re-create the board on the cake, and I wanted to do it as a two-tier cake. My original plan involved adding in all the property details on the first tier, but my son declared that he wanted me to leave it just the way it was, so I did.  I can't tell you how much I really wanted to finish it, because to me it isn't done. However, that is what he wanted, so that is what I did.

I am happy with how the Monopoly dude came out ("No mom, that is MR. Monopoly, not a dude").Ah, well, I like how he came out, what ever his name is.

Happy Birthday to my incredibly smart, wonderful, loving, sweet boy. Mommy loves you very much! I love seeing how God is working in your life and how you are learning about Jesus and how much He loves you. The last seven years has been quite an adventure and I am looking forward to the next seven!
