The Tower

Iz's 5th Birthday is Monday (*gasp* How did THAT happen?) and the family is coming up Sunday to celebrate. Conveniently, Monday is also Hubby's birthday so, though I have to buy & wrap double the presents and make & decorate double the cakes, I only have to plan one birthday event and then I'm done for another year :)

Iz and I went out last week for party supplies and she decided on a Tangled theme for the party. Though it's also Hubby's birthday he has no say on the theme and has, in the last few years, had a princess party, a Backyardigans party, a Tinkerbell party and a Strawberry Shortcake party. Unfair? Yes. But, I make him a carrot cake and he could honestly care less what kind of plate he eats it off of :)

Anyway...Iz and I picked out Tangled plates, napkins, cups, favors and even a little Rapunzel toy to put on the cake. After purchasing all this stuff I asked Iz what kind of cake she wanted for her birthday. In my head, I was referring to chocolate or vanilla but that's not what she heard. Here's what was said.

Iz: Rapunzel's Tower (though she pronounces it Reepunzel which, I think, is adorable!).

Me: I meant what flavor cake

Iz: Oh, I don't care as long as it's Reepunzel's tower.

Me: You watch too much Cake Boss!

So, I'm temporarily retiring as chief cook and bottle washer and starting a new job. Architect. Wish me luck!

Here's the inspiration for my first project...
