As a cake decorator, it’s easy to get caught up in my own vision of how a cake should look. Which works, since most people aren’t overly specific about how they want a cake to look.
Except for my boys.
My boys have a very specific vision in mind when they ask for a cake.
For example, when I made my 5 year old’s Pirate Ship Cake in January, his first comment was, “the cannon is facing the wrong way.” Little critic!
This past week was my 3 year old’s birthday. He has known for quite some time that he wanted a Mickey Cake.
I had a grand cake in mind, something like the Minnie Cake from last year. But then I thought I’d best consult with the birthday boy.
And all he really wanted were red and green and blue Mickeys on his cake.
So I gave my little boy exactly what he wanted! And he was thrilled!
