    I love it Rachel!! So wish your mother and I could have been there to share the celebration and the laughter!! Blessings!!

    That is completely something I would do. In addition I would be so very proud of how beautiful the cake looks only to discover the goof. It is good to laugh!

    You, dear Rachel, are beautiful! I loved this post as I think most of us have done something similar so we can relate. I once baked a chicken with the little parts bag still tucked in his tail end, baked a frozen pizza on cardboard and baked a cake mix without adding the oil. I really do better with home grown, from scratch food!

    You look so happy! I have done some silly things in the kitchen myself. Better to laugh than cry.

  5. Melissa says:

    First of all, you have a beautiful smile. Second of all, don’t feel bad. I do stuff like that all the time. You just have to laugh.

  6. Jen says:

    Umm…that photo of you is not at all unflattering. You have a great smile.

    That so sounds like something I would have done. I’m sure the cake tasted great.

    What a sweet story to remember and laugh at again as more birthdays roll around. We can all relate in one way or another.

    Oh and p.s. – you look pretty nice in that candid shot to me. I think I have that same teal colored top.

    Ha! This sounds like something I would do. It’s so good to be able to laugh at it!

  13. Tracey says:

    Isn’t today the day you get your new keys?….Congratulations!

    Oh Dear! My 3 year old’s birthday cake was one for the records too!
    The first pan broke just as I was to put it in the oven. Plan B- cupcakes. But I forgot about them as our guests arrived. They were SO hard – like cookie crispy! My husband turned them upside down and put whip cream on them while I just laughed! And then the actual cake turned out to be a brownie texture. Ugh! On top of all that we were still recovering from carbon monoxide poisoning. I’m just so glad to be alive!
