Birthday cake

Let me just start by saying, I am not a baker. I'm not good at it nor do I enjoy it. But my kiddos think that mom's homemade cakes and especially my frosting are the best.

My cakes are generally lopsided. I blame the oven, but it's very likely my fault.

This cake came to be because the first one I made broke into about 7 pieces when I was taking it out of the pan.  I nearly cried...

Did I mention I don't like baking...?
I made a whole new cake this morning. I left it in the pan until I was sure it had "set" so to speak.
This one came out in one piece..thank goodness.

I decided to use some of the chunks of cake to create a hill for the freshly washed Army men to make their stand upon.

This was also good to help camouflage the lopsidedness of the cake.
Since I was adding crumbly cake to the top and trying to frost it as well I needed something to cover my mistakes. Crushed up graham crackers fit the bill.  It looks a bit like sand or at least some rugged terrain if you use your imagination.

I hope he likes it...

I do know that it tastes better than it looks. :)

Don't worry...it's a gift

No, I haven't changed my allegiance...
I'm still a Vikings fan.  

Little J had a birthday party to go to today for a neighborhood friend. 
The Packer fans on the block.
It seemed fitting that her American Girl doll would be a Green Bay fan as well. 

The gifts should have been opened by now so I think it's safe to post this. 
If not...hey, what are you doing browsing the internet while the party is going on?!?!
Put that smart phone away.
