Jackson's first birthday is February 2. He'll be one WHOLE year old! I can't believe how fast the time has gone. I fully intend on waking up any day now and witness him walk out the door and off to college. (Hopefully a cheap college.)
I had a friend make the cutest invitations for me, last minute. I ordered a special birthday t-shirt for him and a special diaper for him to wear (we use cloth diapers). Everything has a Groundhogs theme. Get it? Because he was born on Groundhogs Day?? I know, I'm clever.
Well it turns out that you can't get a custom Groundhog cake at Target. I thought they had everything! And Duff from Ace of Cakes charges just a tad too much AND they don't deliver. When I say a tad too much, I mean the starting price is $500.
So, guess what? I'm making Jackson's birthday cake. A Groundhog cake, actually. Have I ever made a cake? Never. Am I excited? Hell yea.
I'm gonna need all the well wishes and positive thoughts you can muster for this endeavor. I'm so gonna need it.
