Last night the Dixon’s came over to help celebrate Jason’s birthday. We had a lot of fun are are so glad that they came over. Jason had decided that he wanted to just stay home and grille steaks for his birthday. I don’t think he was anticipating sub-freezing temperatures while he grilled! But the steaks turned out so good and we enjoyed seeing Caroline (and her Mom and Dad). Here are some pictures!
Each year since my sophomore year I’ve had Jason take a picture with his cake on his birthday. Once year it had Shrek candies on it! This cake is a little more traditional.
Look at that cutie!
Her smile is infectious! And she has the most beautiful blue eyes!
And now, here is the cake. It took almost four hours to make yesterday but I think we all agreed last night that it was worth it. I got the recipe from this post of Bakerella’s. I used the 12 layer cake recipe that she used. I also chose to frost the cake a second time with the dark chocolate buttercream icing. I’m just so glad that I passed my glucose test last week and don’t have gestational diabetes so that I could partake of the cake! 🙂
