The Cake

With alot of encouragement and a very good recipe with great tips from my sister-in-law Ronnin I decided to make the cake for Kaden's party. I could have done much better but for my first cake I was happy with it. I'm planning on taking a beginners cake decorating class soon. It was a slow process but I really did enjoy it.

I made two cakes with a pound cake recipe. Pound cake is easier to cut. Then I outlined the guitar with a cake writer.

Once it was cut I put it back in the fridge to cool.

I even tinted the icing yellow!

Every detail on the cake was candy.

It was gone in a matter of minutes after this picture was taken.

Right after Kaden's 5th birthday party Kaden announced for his sixth birthday he wanted a rockstar party. At that time it seemed so far away and its hard to believe its happened and already a memory. A great memory too!

Kaden's Birthday week started with a photo shoot. Our great friend's Rey and Debs did this for the Birthday guy.

Karson got into it too and started striking a pose.

Kaden started getting tired and worn out and it started going down hill. Kaden had been outside all day helping his Daddy and Papa build the stage.

Then he had a pep talk from Rey and Debs that rockstars don't cry and he had some poses left.

After the shoot the boys got to play on the playground.

On Saturday we had a rockstar party/concert for Kaden.

I have used this banner every year for Kaden since his 1st Birthday.



Kaden and his best bud Dawson rockin.

Karson even got some goodies. I think he thought it was his Birthday too.

Kaden's candle this year was a #6 sparkler.

I made the cake this year!

Once all the guests had left the party didn't stop we had to enjoy the awesome stage one more time.

I am so happy it came together and that so many of our friends and family got to celebrate a really cool little dude's Birthday with us.

It's hard for me to believe my little guy is already six years old. It seems like yesterday I was bringing him home from the hospital and I was in awe of what God had blessed us with. I am still in awe of you rockstar. You amaze me everyday with every new thing you learn. Your one talented little dude and I know God has something big planned for you. I love you so so much.
