This is a cake I made for our neighbor Kevin. He is a champion Junior Dragster race car driver. His car is painted with lots of details and amazing artwork done by his dad. So when it came to making his birthday cake I was a little overwhelmed with all the details. But when I saw a picture of the dragster from the front I decided that I would attempt to make a 2-D version. Here is what I came up with and I have a new appreciation for his dad's talent. Happy 11th Birthday, Kevin!! And the little girlie cake above is for a friend who will be at the party too.
We are blessed to have amazing neighbors!
As he walked in the door from school he excitedly yelled - Its a rip-stick ( and I am doing the sigh of relief that he knew what it was.) I little later he opened his gift and got a real rip-stik!
And by the end of the night he was rip-stiking around grandma's basement.
And this young man just turned 7!! My baby is growing up. Its hard to believe it is 7 years already. When I think about the day when he was born and the craziness that followed, I remember all those feelings of uncertainty. Following the ambulance to Hershey medical where they were moving him because of his low blood - oxygen level, left us feeling so helpless and scared. But the prayers of so many friends and family got us thru the next couple days while his levels came up and we could take him home with us. And we brought him home in a snowstorm to our cozy house. We love you, Cody-man!
We took the cake and some ice cream and headed over to Grandma's house because she invited us for homemade pumpkin pie. After blowing out the candles we dug into pie and cake and ice cream. Yummy!
