You Say It's Your Birthday....

While yesterday was the big day, today was the classroom party. Sheridan and I showed up right before school ended, we brought THE cake, we sang happy birthday, we passed out goody bags, and we're now done for another year. Woo hoo...

So here it is. The much anticipated, never-to-be-let-down birthday cake. In the shape of an auto rickshaw, or tuk tuk as the kids like to call it. That took almost half a day to bake, design, and frost - give or take a few hours. Now I thought last year's cupcakes were my piece de resistance. But I'm having second thoughts after seeing the end results here. Riley's reaction? Pure and utter joy. She thought it was great that she was driving the rickshaw AND in the passengers seat. Only in India ... where anything is possible in a tuk tuk.

Awesome cake. I usually just slap on frosting trying to be creative, slap on more frosting, throw on sprinkles and give up, lol.
