The cake.

The plan was for me to make Teagan's cake this year.  I was just going to use the Funfetti stuff from Betty Crocker and decorate the outside with pink and polka dots.  Mark that up as a big FAIL.  I thought I would just bake them in circular pans and then cut them down to size and decorate them. Yeah, have you ever tried to ice a cake you've cut? I hadn't. Until Teagan's birthday party. It doesn't work. At all.  So, instead of a birthday cake Teagan got a birthday cupcake in an ice cream cone with candles and I crumbled the cake into cupcake holders, sprinkled polka dot sprinkles and put little party flags in them. No use in wasting a good cake!
