Yeah, it's a fancy cake alright . . . and it comes with a fancy price tag . . . $129.95! Oh yes, I am not kidding!
So, at this point, I showed Mason the other pirate cake option. It's cute. Take a look . . .
But, compared to the other one, I guess it's a let-down. Mason was not impressed. At all. So for a couple of days, I really tried to talk him into this cake. It's a manageable $34.95! I finally realized this cake would just be a disappointment to him.
And that's when I decided to make the pirate cake myself! Oh yes, you read that correctly. I don't have a back-up plan . . . so this has to work! While Hannah Kate was napping this afternoon, Mason, Abbie and I went to work on his pirate cake. We got all of the layers baked, cut and assembled. I must say I'm rather proud of our efforts . . . thus far. I still haven't iced it or decorated it. So we'll see. But, in the meantime, we really enjoyed ourselves, and I think it's coming together quite nicely!
