I’m still here. Still pregnant.

We had a really nice five days with my dad up visiting. He came up on Wednesday afternoon, and left this morning. Every day was family, family, and more family. It was nice to have an excuse to get everyone together every day. But more on that later. I have a ton of pics.

For now, I want to share the smash cake that I made for my nephew, Bryce, who turned 1 today. My brother and sister-in-law had his big birthday bash on Saturday. Marie, asked me to make him a cake, but knowing that I was going to be nine months pregnant, she went easy on me—I was only responsible for the smash cake. :) She made cupcakes for everyone else!

The theme for the party? John Deere and/or tractors.

Marie shared a few inspiration photos, and I did some Googling of my own. And then she bought a little John Deere tractor to go on top, and my job was made even easier.

Although it was super simple, I still seriously loved this cake! The green and the yellow, the dirt… so… “boy.”

The dirt, of course, was made from pulverized Oreos that I ground up in my food processor. Everything else is just buttercream icing (with the exception of the tractor, of course).

Next up? I have to figure out what on earth I’m going to do for Nora’s 3rd birthday cake. Crazy to think about, but it’ll be here before we know it. And word from the birthday-girl-to-be is that she wants a princess party this year. SHOCKING. :)
