Happy Birthday Mom!

So on a day like today what do I do with my time? Bake, a lot. Let me tell you, I feel like I was in the kitchen all freakin' day. It's insane. Course, it wasn't really all day, but it felt like it. I was whipped man! I had a good reason for spending all day in the kitchen though. It was me madre's birthday and I was baking her a cake. Heehee, aren't I a good 'un? It makes up for all the not-so-good things I do. Okay, not really, but sometimes it's nice to delude oneself.

I also baked some cookies. Gingersnaps and these weird snowball Christmas things. I didn't dare touch the weird-snowball-Christmas things, they had white chocolate in them (and that stuff is the bane of my existence. Okay, not really, but still). The gingersnaps where as yummy as ever though! My bestest homie ever came over as well to make some cookies for a cookie exchange tomorrow, and we had a blast goofin' off, but we always have a blast so that's not newsworthy. xP

Blowin' out the candles.

My padre said it was an abstract 38...I was cornfused, but it's all good.
They told me a cake should look like this. I disagreed.
I'm tellin' you, once you eat one of my gingersnaps you'll never look at a storebought one the same.
I know it looks like a ball of wax, but it was delicious....and homemade icing always turns out funky!
