My son’s fourth birthday was last weekend. We have a little mini tradition of candy topped birthday cakes for the kids. It started with my older son who has the unfortunate luck of having his birthday the day after Christmas. I am terrible at decorating and on Christmas night (he likes to wake up to his cake)….there is no chance. The candy was a cute and easy way to make his cake fun.
Well, I got a little distracted decorating this year (and I don’t even have a holiday excuse) and didn’t adequately even out the cake layers. They weren’t balanced too well. When the frosting hit, it was all over. Will was helping and we were lucky to keep it as together as we did. Fortunately, Colin is four and hasn’t developed an eye for perfection. It had candles, candy and chocolate. What more can you ask for?
