Also separate cakes made picture taking that much easier. And there was no fighting over who blew out which candles- wishes for everyone all around.
Miles did the rest. He picked out the candy and added it all just how he wanted it. Then I gave him some gel icing tubes I had leftover from another project and he went to town with those.
This kid is crazy creative and I feel bad because I have to say “no” to so many of his ideas and request. “No, you can’t paint on your walls with watercolors (not while we are trying to sell the house at least.)” “No, we can’t build you a store in the front yard tomorrow.” “No, you can’t use the miter saw by yourself to build your robot.”
It felt so good to say “Yes! Do whatever you want to your cake. Design and decorate your little heart out. Use up ALL the gel icing! No rules!”
And isn’t it the best cake ever? I could not have made a more fun cake if I had used all the Pinterest inspiration I could find. No amount of party-theme-perfection could ever have topped the fun that he and I both had creating this crazy cake together.
Now that I have almost recovered from Miles birthdaypooloza it is time to start planning Wylie’s party. What was I thinking having kids with birthdays two weeks apart? In 100 degree weather? Oy.
