Vanessa's 29th birthday was Thursday September 25th! When did that happen??!! My little Punkin is almost 30 years old!! Yikes! Although I worked at the store that day I wanted to do something for her so I invited the family over to the house for supper. I was going to make spaghetti, one of her favorite meals, but Doyle didn't want me to have to cook and suggested I pick up something. Well, Mexican is her next favorite so I picked up food from there. By the time I got done at the store, fed horses and went to get food the kids were at the house.
I had hoped to make her a birthday cake too but the night before was Church and I didn't get it done. I decided I would make it right after supper. It would be fresh that way too!
Vanessa was 9 days past her due date so after supper she and Keannon went for a walk giving Kennedy and I time to make the cake and put in the oven.
The best part of making a cake is....liking the scrapper!
The finished product! Buttermilk chocolate cake from scratch and homemade frosting!
I know that's not "29" candles but it was the best I could do! The cake was still warm enough in the center that when I pulled out the candles they were bent!
Vanessa had a couple of hard contractions at our house before they went home. Kennedy wanted to spend the night...how could I say no?!
It was much later in the evening when Vanessa text me to say her water broke! The rest of that story is here!
Can you see the reflection of the Baker Hotel and the sunset on the hood of my truck!
Have a good one!
