Today was the big day of Cooper's Birthday party! I made the mistake of waiting until the morning of the party to throw the cake together so I was major stressed all morning trying to make it work. Poor Isaak was laying on the floor watching TV and finally just fell asleep because Mommy wasn't lovin all over him like I usually am. Doesn't he look simply DIVINE! YUM, I could eat this baby boy up! He's gonna be my little snuggler who just loves Mommy to death, I already know it. BUT, isn't that how last borns are supposed to be? You gotta blow this picture up to get the full effect...go ahead, you know you want to!
So the cake. It went well, I think. It looked nice but I'm not sure about the taste. I ended up doing a sponge cake roll because everything I read about cake rolls said that you should do it with a sponge/angel food type cake. Apparently they hold together better when you roll them up and I didn't have time for a yummy devil's food cake to fall apart on me last minute. I made it a chocolate sponge with a cream cheese filling which was deeeelicious but put it with the sponge cake...hmm...not sure. I didn't try the cake because I didn't want to know if it was horrible. I knew that would just embarrass me more so I refrained from partaking.
The fondant went SEMI well. No one told me it's just grownup playdoh. I hate playdoh remember? The handle of the saber was easy but the actual stick part was hard because I had to use such a big piece. It kept falling apart and tearing. I did it three times and then freaked. I sent Austin to the store to get regular frosting for my backup plan because I knew the fondant wasn't gonna work out. While he was gone I decided to try ONE more time. This time I didn't roll the fondant out as thin because I knew it would stretch when I picked it up and voila! It worked! Once the fondant was on the rest was a piece of cake (no pun intended).
Alvis (Matt) and his wife Natalie came to the party. They weren't planning on it but then Alvis told Austin that his wife was really gettin the baby bug and she wanted to hold Isaak. Turns out, I think it's ALVIS who has the baby bug because he snatched up my Izey as soon as he woke up and he fed him and loved on him for quite a while! Hmm...
