Happy Birthday Mike!

It's Mike's birthday today. He's 31. And hot. Still. And I love him a lot. In fact, I think I might just love him a little more each birthday he has. This was a good one too. We slept in while the boys and our new cat terrorized the house. The boys and I made him a big breakfast of mostly meat products, we hung out and did nothing for a few hours and then Mike took the boys outside to play in the balmy -2* C weather. After they came in we gave him his gifts which consisted of a certificate to take a vacation sans kids to the tropical location of his choice, a new camera to journal said vacation and the best gift of all... a birthday cake that was dreamed up with none other than Mike in mind. If you know Mike, you'll know that he really LOVED the cake. At least he acted like it. And that's what I'm going to keep telling myself. Cause that sucker took a lot of work. And a special shout out to Jana for helping me with it!

And just in case you didn't recognize it, it's supposed to be an i-Pod touch.

This is just a picture of the leftover fondant. I'll just warn you, if you ever want to make a multitude of colors of fondant make sure your hands are up to the task of kneading, and kneading some more and then kneading a little more. My hands were killing me by the time we got all the colors done! Turns out black fondant isn't terribly easy to make!

Your talents are endless. I love that cake! Very impressive!! Mike's a very lucky guy.

P.S. I was just showing Steve all your post and the things you do and make. I was talking about how crafty you are and he said, "Karli is a very impressive person. We should have hung out with them more when they lived here." And I totally agree.

I know, back fondant is not so easy to make. I did a "bumblebee" Transformers cake for Thayne last month. It had a lot of black on it. Love your posts.

Karli, please don't tell me that your house is clean too. there is no way you can do such amazing things and have a clean house! At least that's what I tell myself. You really are so creative. I love it!

Karli - If I didn't know you better I'd wonder what you were taking to give you so much energy! The men in your life (little and big) are so lucky to have you! If they need reminding of that fact, have them contact me! Love ya! Keli
