One dessert I would not deny myself – Granddaughter’s birthday cake for Grandpa

Wednesday, January 23, 2013



I meant to post this last week after my post for DH's birthday - The Junk Food King & I.

Our 11 year old granddaughter likes to bake and decorate cakes. This is our lake complete with sparkly water, our dock and boat, truck and jet skis. There’s even “edible rip-rap.” Very cool.

Here’s our baker with grandpa.


Yes, that’s a race shirt. She’s a runner too.

    Nice job, nice picture. Thanks for sharing
I love it, my granddaughter hasn't learned to decorate cakes yet- I pretty much gave that up 00 some years ago when we lived in Florida and I was melting the frosting while trying to make flowers.The eldest GD is only 8. But she does like to cook with me.
Maybe this summer I'll sign her up for cake decorating classes-her brother too.

    Yay, grand-daughter! What an accomplished baker and decorator! My oldest grand-daughter is 7 and she loves to cook with me. (I haven't broken the news to her yet that I really don't like cooking.) She is good with a knife and I let her do everything except the stove. Her specialty is baked salmon with bok choy. Anyway, you are lucky and wonderful grand-parents. Enjoy every minute with her!

    Our niece once made her father a coffee cake with coffee grounds as the main ingredient emoticon

    That is a great cake. Don't you love little girls who are learning to cook? So many young woman have never learned. DW is teaching our 9 YO GD so many things, so I really love this blog.

    That is great! My granddaughter also loves to bake. We've been encouraging her since she was little and she is still going strong at 16 (although now she has a few more interests keeping her busy...)

    She did a great job on the cake and good for you for introducing her to running at such a young age.
