I am not a crafty person. Let's admit this right now. I like to do crafts, I like to imagine that I do them well, but let's face it...mediocore at best....and I'm very definitely okay with that. I like to decorate a cake for my kids' birthday. I did a mermaid cake for Kember this year and Caden still talks about his snake cake for his second birthday (crazy eh). Since Cole's b-day is in less than a week I thought I'd plan ahead, try to get some ideas, you get the picture. Nothing on the website I was looking on was inspiring me and I got to looking at other things. Then it hit me. Cole is (maybe...depending if I get it done or even try to do it) going to be a skunk this year for Halloween because he's my cute little stinker (and I can't find the spider costume that we had for Caden when he was Cole's size). Great! I'll make a cake and decorate it like a skunk, so cute (or a little weird haven't decided which yet, but leaning toward weird...you'll find out why in a minute.) So I'm searching and looking....googling, you get the picture and I type in "how to decorate a skunk cake". I realize that my searching skills need work, but this is what I tried this time. No luck. Lot's of hits, but nothing of what I was looking for. I guess people think skunk and think, "EWWWW!" Well, whatever. After I found a site that talked about making butter and cake out of marijuana I gave up my searching. Seriously, a cake out of maijuana. Really, people make stuff like that? Why on Earth would you do that? and what does it have to do with my searching? Anyway, crazy stuff....maybe he just won't get a fun little cake this year.
