Birthday Boy

My youngest turned 13 yesterday. Now we have two teenagers! help!

~"Boundless Energy" (aka: Birthday Boy) Bakes a Cake~

6:30 am.... birthday boy gets up with boundless energy and decides to make his own birthday cake from the mix he chose at the store the day before.
6:33 am.....sleepy Mom walks into the kitchen to see what the noise is all about.
6:34 am.....sleepy Mom stumbles to the family room sofa to lay down while boundless energy
continues to gather ingredients to make his cake.
6:34 until 7 or so......boundless energy asks if he adds this or that to the mix, sleepy Mom
grunts from the sofa.

~meantime, coffee is brewing and sleepy Mom stumbles back into the kitchen for a cup. She spies the ingredients set out on the counter and realizes boundless energy used olive oil instead of vegetable oil for his cake~

7:10ish.....Mom finishes first cup of coffee and helps pour the batter into the cake pan.

15, 20 minutes later........boundless energy is off doing boundless energy things, Mom has
finished another cup of coffee, the cake is done, and actually doesn't look too bad! ............... albeit a little moist!

There was however a mishap with the removal of the cake from the split in half, so the solution: Two small cakes!

Olive oil works. Think how 'healthy' that cake will be.

Happy birthday to the Man of the Day! Wish I could snatch a wee bit of that yummy looking cake.

Well, at least it's a touch more healthful with the olive oil. So cute!!!

Happy Birthday to the Birthday Boy! I love all those candles! Two teenagers?! I better start taking notes - that will be me in three short years! Is there any cake left?


Manuela said...

Happy Happy Birthday to your Boundles Energy Boy (I sure could use some of that energy)!


PAT said...

I think I've used olive oil for cake, when I didn't have veg oil. How did it taste? Looks like he did a good job, despite the mishap!

Have a wonderful rest of the week, Suzanne and a belated happy birthday to the new teenager at your house!

zI have 2 teenagers too, and it's funny how as the kids get older, they require less physical energy but more mental energy on my part! But they are tons of fun and I think they are actually keeping me young!
Hope the Birthday Boy had a wonderful day!
