Since our oldest daughter’s first birthday, my Husband and I go all out on the cake and try to make it one-of-a-kind, special, something the family hasn’t seen before. And because she always loved Disney princesses – the cake was always a castle. We made 6 different castle cakes. SIX. (Her last birthday she wanted a big girl cake, so I made a layer cake with pink frosting and brown polka dots.)
Now that we have a boy, my Hubby is happy to be done with castle cakes and ready to go all in into boy themed cakes and treats. He designs them, I bake and together we assemble the pieces. When I told him that I need to make a party treat in either fairy or pirate theme – he voted for the pirate theme. With both hands. Can you tell he was excited? 🙂 Both of my boys love pirates!
