Happy Birthday, Jason!

Today, Lash turned 31 and we had a really great day. We woke up to about 6 inches of snow and a snow storm, so we stayed in for most of the day. We watched a movie, napped, cleaned, I baked (destroyed) a cake...but more of that later. For Jason's birthday dinner, we went to one of our favorite Italian restaurants, "Francesca's". Here are some pics from dinner.

After a wonderful dinner we headed back home for birthday cake. So here's the thing. I love to cook, but baking is not really my specialty. But I decided to be brave and give it a try. Earlier today I successfully made a yellow cake and I let it sit out to cool. When we got home, I decided to add the frosting. Disaster! First of all, one can was not enough. And to add insult to injury, the top of the cake pulled up into the icing. I honestly think that this was the first time I have ever iced a cake. It might be the last. The candles helped cover the island of icing, but the outer edges of the cake could not be helped. I had to take pictures.

Not at all phased by the cake. God bless him.

Happy Birthday, Jason. I hope that you had a good day. Sorry about the cake. I hope it at least tastes good. You are the love of my life and you make everyday so bright. Always remember how loved you are.

OK, you should have called Paige for advice on cake icing. If you dip your knife/spatula/icing spreader in water between passes over the cake, it will not destroy the cake. However, how it tastes is more important than how it looks. Hope Jason had a great birthday! Love you and miss you!
