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. :)
AboutI'm Heather. I'm 33 and have been married to Michael for seven years. Together, we have two beautiful little girls we love more than anything, and a miniature dachshund who drives us crazy. I'm a full-time working mom who has very little time for my own "stuff" these days, like home improvement, cooking/baking, cake decorating, and photography. Despite the team not making the playoffs since 1999, I'm STILL a Buffalo Bills fan, which I think speaks to my loyalty AND sense of humor. I can't wait to pick up the pace with travel again some day... you know, when we're done being ruled by tiny fists. Welcome to my blog.
