Brighten your day with some cake, please.


One of the most wonderful things about being able to take pictures is to swap with my other creative friends. And this friend is very creative- she makes the cutest derned little cakes and cupcakes you've ever seen! Check out her blog here: Sugar Mamma Cakes. I have to admit it was rather hard to hand this beautiful little creation above to my 13 month old. But alas, bygones must be bygones, and this cake became a bygone very quickly.



"Who are you and where have you been all my life?!"





The remnants. She ate almost the entire thing. We were winding down from the shoot and most of the cake remained smashed in front of her, she didn't seen particularly interested in finishing it at first- I was trying to figure out how to get her inside without leaving my camera equipment outside or leaving my kids outside by themselves, so as I started packing up, her older siblings, who were eagerly watching in anticipation, asked politely if they could try some. Sure! Help Mommy clean some of this up. Linus walked over and picked up a small piece of it, but before he could get it to his mouth, Odell began waving her arms frantically and whining in frustration, then snatched the cake right out of his hand and ate it up. Linus started balling (my mother in law had just gotten home and was watching and giggling with me), so I calmed him down, and told him to grab another piece- only the exact same thing happened, and same when Chloe tried to get some. Before I knew it, I had to swoop in and grab a couple of pieces to give to the other two and then the rest of the cake was gone. I got a quick lick of the scrumptious cake from the frosting on my finger and Odell demolished the rest. I suddenly had horrid visions pop into my head of an 80 lb Kindergarten girl hobbling around the cafeteria at school snatching up other kids' cupcakes out of their lunches and smothering them into her mouth before they could stop her...yes, smash cake shoot will only happen once per kid, I believe...
Go order a cupcake from Emily and eat it. Right now. For the rest of us who didn't get any from my monster baby...

Dang cute. Will have to do a cake smashing with the next one... and will probably just have to make Marlie a cupcake of her own for the sake of aurguements!
I'm loving Odell's darker hair (or is it just the brown background?) She should not be that old already!!!
