Hayleigh opened her gifts from us Saturday morning. And of course, her favorite was the cheapest one. A counting piggy bank that I got from one of the local Amish bent & dent stores for $2.50.
I baked her birthday cake Saturday night. We got a Mickey Mouse cake pan from Cory’s aunt and were going to make some changes to it once baked to make it into a Minnie cake. Well, I forgot to spray the pan before putting the batter in it. And so, when it was done baking, it would not come out of the pan. We finally did get it out and it completely fell apart. Needless to say, I had a bit of a meltdown. We had also made cupcakes, but only 22 so I didn’t think that would be enough for everyone(it may have been close though).
So, Cory went off to Country Fair at 5:15 Sunday morning to get more cake mix, so she could still have a cake. I had no idea how we were going to have time to get everything done before the party though. But, the cupcakes frosted while he was at the store. Got it all mixed up and poured into two round pans this time. And guess what I did? yep, forgot to spray the pans. Thankfully, the cakes still came right out of them, only leaving a little of the top layer of cake in the pan. I frosted one pink with white polka dots. The other one Cory decorated to look like Minnie and we used two cupcakes for the ears. Can’t believe it, but I forgot to take pictures of the cakes before we were ready to eat them. And I finished doing the dishes and getting everything set out, just as people started to arrive.
Out of the four friends that we invited, only two responded that they were coming. And out of those two, only one of them showed up. But, she still had a good time. So, really that’s all that matters. Not my high stress level, or how the cake turned out, or even how clean the house was.
