Just for the record, that fancy new mixer I wrote about in my previous post apparently does perform magic. I emptied all of the ingredients for Avery's birthday cake into the mixing bowl, turned it on, sat down for an hour to read a book, then came back to find this perfectly assembled on my kitchen counter:
Alright, so it wasn't that easy. But the mixer did cut the prep time in half, at least. And! I ran into no major snafus as with cakes I've decorated in the past, which made it a very successful and therefore delightful baking experience all around. Avery loved the cake and praised my work--declaring repeatedly that I was "such a good baker"--but refused to eat a single morsel of her own 3-tiered birthday cake. Not because she was afraid to mess it up, but because I had made the mistake of infusing raspberry filling into the middle of each tier. "Mommy, you know I don't like jelly," she scolded. "Well, more for me!" I replied.
We threw a Fancy Nancy dress-up soiree at a little studio called Diva Girlz
for her and a few friends. They all had so much fun, and I think the adults had just as much fun watching them!
So hard to believe our baby girl is 4 years old.
Happy Birthday, Sweet Avery!
