After continuous iPhone scrolling, I’ve managed to find the last two years worth of ugly birthday cakes that I told you about in this post. The ones Seth made are on the left, and mine are on the right. As you can tell, we have two distinct cake decorating styles: He likes to pile as much candy onto cakes as possible, and apparently I like to have random stuff sticking out of them.
My favorite part of our accidental tradition? The anticipation. We end up presenting them to each other in such over the top ways that we’re already cracking up before the candles are even lit. Basically we justify acting like children by telling ourselves that when we have kids we’ll already have one birthday tradition covered.
You know the saying that start outs with “I love you like a chubby kid loves…”? Well, there has got to be a joke in there somewhere over my love for these ruffled ice cream cones by Icing Designs. Could they really be any more perfect? If only I could always be more in love with fabric ice cream cones than the real deal..

A little of this, a little of that. Basically long weekends as I know them. I hope you had a fantastic Memorial Day! We grilled out in between shopping, errands, and a little bit of worked mixed in.

I love pretty cakes. Ironically though, hubby and I have an ugly birthday cake tradition. It all started accidentally a few years ago, and we’ve kept it up ever since. One failed attempt led to another, and the next thing you know, our cakes were so hilariously awful that they were far more memorable than any others. With that being said, if I could always come up with something as simple and pretty as these glitter heart cake toppers by The Paper Pony, then I may have been able to avoid some minor catastrophes… just some.
