I wish your birthday could have turned out a little better. I don’t think having your daddy deploy on your birthday is a wish anyone could have had!
The past year you have grown and changed so much! You are hilarious, charming, adorable, my sweet stubborn baby boy. You are still very shy around new people but your sister was the same way when she was your age. You have a temper just like your daddy did when he was young and go from zero to MAD in about two seconds. It is perfect that your soccer team is the incredible hulks.
You’ve done great moving from Spain to Hawaii, even though it meant leaving behind the only house you’ve ever known and all of your friends. You are doing GREAT in kindergarten and your teachers wish there were twenty more kids like you in the class.
Your favorite past times are playing video games (especially your BRAND NEW 3DS XL!), driving your sister crazy, and wrestling with Bowser.
I hope this next year is wonderful for you! Mommy and Daddy love you SO much!
Super fast and easy…
I recommend using a white cake mix so the colors are bright.
Mix up cake using instructions on box.
Separate into bowls depending on how many colors you want to use. Mckenna wanted 5 different colors so I separated the batter into 5 different bowls.
I used these gel food colors instead of the regular drops, don’t know if it makes a difference but I like them.
Just pour in any way you would like, both cake layers ended up super different.
After baking and cooling, I leveled both cakes, I was pleased with how bright the colors turned out!
I also cheated and mixed my can of vanilla frosting with a 8 ounce package of cream cheese. Quick and easy cream cheese frosting (also makes MORE frosting for your cake so you can really pack it on there!)
I stole this square cake idea decorated with M&M’s, super easy and simple
You could probably use skittles if you would prefer those colors, but I like M&M’s better… I also used some regular and some peanut butter just to have the variety of sizes. The girls all thought it was cool and couldn’t wait to eat it!
Easy and delicious! The great thing is that you can do this with any colors you want to match it to a specific theme!
