It's Bart's birthday today! My supa-cool mother-in-law was digging through her basement and found her Wilton cake pans from when her 4 boys were little and she gave them to me!
I think my husband was way more excited than even I was, because he remembers all his Superman and robot cakes that he had for his birthdays and he was thrilled that we have these pans. Also this was really lucky because Bart wants a Batman cake this year. Yay!
So later today I'll be trying to ice a cake into a respectable Batman and use the least amount of pure-black icing. Wish me luck!
Also this was our cake-related discussion this morning. I had to ask him all this over the phone while his dad chased him through the dinosaur museum, so it took much longer than seemed strictly necessary.
Mom: What kind of cake do you want?
M: But what flavor?
What would Batman flavor be? Thinking about it kind of makes me gag.
M: OK.... What color do you want your cake?
Try not to imagine me rolling my eyeballs until they rattle themselves loose.
M: Do you want white vanilla or yellow vanilla?
B: Yeh-wo vaniwah Batman cake.
