Let The Insanity Begin

It's July.
The month that I Love to Hate.
The month of never-ending Birthdays.
The month where I turn into Martha-fuckin-Stewart and get lost in a mess of batter, frosting and food coloring and proclaim NEVER AGAIN! WHAT WAS I THINKING?!?!?! HAVE I GONE COMPLETELY MAD!!??!!?? over-and-over for three weeks straight.
Tomorrow is The Boy's 4th birthday and he requested
this for his cake.
The 25th is the Hubby's birthday. I have no idea what to do for him.

(He tells me that he does not like sweets, especially chocolate and yet will twirl the frosting from Entenmann's Fudge Iced Golden Cake around his fork into a GIANT spiral to savor the fudgy goodness all by itself.)
(I don't know either but if you figure it out clue me in, k?)
Cinderella's 10th birthday is the day after Hubby's and she is helping me make
The end of the month is when we will have our Combo Birthday BBQ in which I will wow our guests with
this creation.
Yes, I am certifiable.

Yep, I remember those days. It would be so hot on my daughter's birthday that I would have to put the frosting in the freezer to keep it from melting. The sad thing is.. she doesn't remember many of them! I have pictures as proof, though.

Have fun and good luck!!

You should stop over at my site...I am in the middle of shopping, baking, cooking and preparing for a dual 30th birthday for myself and my boyfriend. We are expecting between 55-65 people from 12-8pm. My kitchen probably looks very much like yours!

Oh wow. And I thought I was ambitious! I gave up on the extravagant cakes. I buy them, to my mother's horror. But believe me, I have many other things that I still stress about...just not the cake anymore!

Just curious, but WHY do you have a COMBO party if you have the individual parties???

But still, Martha, you inspired me and gave me confidence to make the Pooh cake, and I may just attempt another this year!
