Birthday party ideas…hmmmm

August 23, 2007 at 5:10 am 1 comment

Little Mini’s 1st birthday is this Saturday and it feels like I’ve got so much to plan for. I ordered a cake for the friends and family yesterday and decided, after a bit of deliberation, that I had to make her first cake — especially since I made Ms. Bean’s first birthday cake. Afterall, it’s only fair. I didn’t want something so momentous to come back and haunt me 18 years later when the Mini can’t suppress her disapproving opinion about my mothering style any longer…”mom, why didn’t I get the same treatment as my older sister…?!“. It’s bound to happen one way or another but if I can dodge this bullet, then I will. So, I set out to find a unique cake pan tonight. I flew into Williams-Sonoma before they closed and found this fantastic octopus cake pan. It was perfect because it would be nearly impossible for me to screw it up. Frosting decoration is not one of my strong suits. I could handle the octopus because, if I happen to be short on time and energy, I can pour a simple glaze over him and…voila! Done!



I found this Backyard Bug Cakelet Pan on Williams-Sonoma site. If they’d been in stock this evening, I would’ve probably purchased them too; however, I would have become a hopeless baker all weekend. Whew…
