Yesterday was MiniM.E.'s natal equinox. It was a pretty exciting day for her. So I bought her a cake. Let's be honest. I bought me a cake. Any excuse to eat cake...
I wanted to have the store write "Happy Natal Equinox" on the cake, but as it was, the decorations were far from fabulous and I wasn't going to risk them ruining my $13 cake. (Really? $13 for a CAKE? I could make 13 cakes for $13. The price you pay for convenience... and tasty frosting) So I bought some pink gel icing. NOT the easiest thing to write on a cake with, but it did the job.
I was pretty upset because as it turns out, she wasn't even feeling well and seemed to have a tummy ache. I didn't want to mess with whatever stomach bug she might have by feeding it sugar, so she didn't even get to eat any Natal Equinox cake.
To make up for it, I let her drive the car. Seems like a fair trade off.
