Let’s eat cake!

Last year I decided that rather than buying a present for Meagan’s birthday and slapping a tag on it that says “From Annie” that I would let Annie pick out Meagan’s birthday cake. It’s the perfect solution for us as Meagan is old enough to not really care what the character is on her birthday cake, but Annie is young enough that she has definite opinions on what everyone would like and wants to feel like she is part of the process.

If you remember, this is the cake that Meagan picked last year.


A couple of days before Meagan’s birthday Annie and I sneak off to the bakery and I sit her down with the idea book. We flip through the pages until Annie comes across the perfect cake, the one she is SURE her big sister will love. This is the cake that made the cut for Meagan’s 18th birthday.

It’s perfect. Perfect because Annie picked out just for Meagan. She loved it.

We celebrated with cake today, a day early because we are heading to the State Fair tomorrow. Maybe we’ll bring a candle to put in Meagan’s mandatory stop at the deep fried Twinkie stand.
