Domestic Disaster

Today I wanted to make a cake before Trent came home.
I wanted to surprise him with a beautiful cake with yummy cheesecake frosting.
I wanted to be a domestic goddess.
My daughter requested pink be the main color.
Everything went great....

till I tried to frost it.
All my hard work.
MY beautiful cake!!!!! :( :( :(
All my dreams of becoming a domestic goddess crumble to the floor.
Well not really because when my daughter saw it sitting on the counter in all its falling -apart-ness she said in the sweetest most sincere voice "MOM its sooooooo beautiful!"
I'm almost ok now and this post is part of the "get over it, its just a cake" healing process for me.
I have to be able to laugh at these things.

I love Lizzie for helping you feel better about this! You're already a domestic goddess because you take very good care of your family -- you don't have to try to be Martha Stewart too!

Love you! Hugs for the whole Gudmundsen family from Aunt Liberty!

Lj- I can totally relate!!!
I had this similar experience! I made a cake for Louis' B-day and I had the second layer come out of the pan in multiple pieces Waaa! Then Louis came into the kitchen to see what was wrong and found me sobbing on the kitchen floor in a heap. I just wanted it to be perfect for him! Then he told me he didn't like rassberry jam filling in side his cakes any way! Sigh!
I wish I had had a Lizzie to tell me it was beautiful!

Beautiful Crumb Cake!
