Andy's 4th birthday

It all started with this great idea to make a checkerboard cake... and he wanted "blue frosting"  well, so I went to work with the pastry bags and piped them into the pans, blue and white and so on... I thought it would turn out just fine.... Mom had pans that were specifically designed for such things, but I thought free form would work just as well...  He loved the blue frosting and the sprinkles and was really excited for the party and mostly the cake.  Fast forward through the longest day of a 4 year olds life... waiting for everyone to be in the same place at the same time to open presents, eat dinner and finally have CAKE!  Cut into cake, and awwwww well, not quite what I had hoped for with the checkerboard effect, but oh well!  It tasted good to a 4 year old and that's all that mattered. 

Can you believe, by the way, my baby is a 4 year old soon to be preschool boy?  NO, ME EITHER!!!!  there's something not right about that.  I hate to see him grow up, but love watching it all happen and getting to have him as my best little pal ever!  Andy is a special little boy!  Hope I made his day as special as a Mom can, in more ways than cake!
