One of the main reasons for coming up to VA recently was for my dad’s birthday party. It’s a big one this year and he wanted to have himself a party. My mom decided on a crab theme for a few reasons. We have always lived in a seafood loving area (and love it ourselves) and my dad found this sign when he retired that says, “Don’t bother me I’m crabby” and put it on his office door (for grins and giggle ;). I tried something new by making this cake.
I’ve only made sheet cakes up until this point, so I’m so glad it turned out okay! And it tasted yummy too.
It’s starting to get me thinking about what I’m going to do for my daughter’s 3rd birthday, although that is still a ways away. It’s never too early to start planning though, right?
I also made my dad “The Birthday Crab” t-shirt. I did a freezer paper stencil and it didn’t work too well this time, but it worked out. So, Happy Birthday Dad! We had a lot of fun and hope you did too 🙂
