As I’ve mentioned before, birthdays bring out the wannabe Martha in me. Overcompensating working mom much?
For my daughter’s birthday earlier this month, we had a karate party. I always try to do a special cake; this year I found the perfect one right here on parenting.com. And guess what? It really was as easy and as doable as touted. My daughter is a purple belt; I couldn’t find purple Starburst, so I used pink since she’s wishes they had a pink belt. My only issue was that the super-moist cake mix I used got a little crumb-y when I frosted. It’s definitely got a homemade look but I loved how it turned – and it tasted delicious!
