Every year the boys think of some type of yummy cake for us to make on their birthday. This year Brandon wanted a chocolate cake with strawberries in the center topped off with a whipped cream icing. It was pretty good! Chocolate and strawberries are always a favorite of his. Brandon was pretty excited to turn nine. It may have something to do with the electric guitar he got or the fact that his Uncle Rick and cousin Auna surprised him. They flew out here on Friday night and left Sunday afternoon. Brandon so happy he cried, he felt so loved. It was a pretty special birthday for my little man.
Nathan turned 13 in December. Thirteen. 1 3. My baby is a teenager. I've had nightmares about him turning into a teenager. So far nothing crazy has happen. He still wanted me to make his cake, he still wanted his birthday to be celebrated with his family and he still doesn't mind being seen with me in public. But I know these days are limited, so I'm going to hang on to them with all my might!
Nathan's cake this year was a sweet one. Dark chocolate cake with a coconut filling. Topped with a coconut icing and oozing chocolate ganche. It was good, but it was extremely sweet. Just like him!
