I have never quite been able to conquer the difficult task of icing cakes. Whether it is the icing, the utensils, or simply just me, my poor cakes just never look very pretty. But that did not stop me from attempting to decorate Carter's smash cake. No matter what it looked like, he still had a little fun putting his fingers in it and taking a taste!
Even though I made his smash cake I was not gutsy enough to make the big cake....so I had it made to match the invites. By the amount that we had left over it must not only have looked cute but it must have been really yummy! There's Carter in his precious little birthday outfit exploring some of the packages that he just couldn't wait to rip into! He had so much fun playing with all the paper and boxes and later that night he just kept going from one new toy to the next. He couldn't make up his mind which one he actually wanted to play with...he loved them all!
At first, Carter was a little overwhelmed by the amount of people that were there cheering him on as he ate his cake. Then he finally went for it...for a short while at least. I don't think he really enjoyed getting his hands dirty. His hands all covered with cake went straight to the hair which acted like a towel removing all the major clumps of icing. His hair smelled so yummy after that but way too sticky to leave! Had he only known a bath was coming perhaps he would have had a little more fun with the icing. Maybe next year!
