Happy Birthday Pops!

Ok, here's the big surprise for my dad's birthday. It arrived yesterday & the girls are poking & gawking at it in the photo...
It's a king cake! I decided to do something fun for dessert for his party tonight! I ordered it from New Orleans & I've left it as a surprise for my entire fam (except for mom & grandmother). My sis is pretty much from Louisiana & it'll be a sentimental thing for her as well since she relocated here after Hurrican Katrina & a piece of her will always be there.

I left the cake in the bag to keep it fresh, but I'll get better pictures tonight when we're all munching on it! I think it is a faux pas to eat a king cake after Mardi Gras (Feb 5th this year!), but I guess I'm willing to suffer the humiliation.

My dad is a giant goofball & I love him so much! Happy Birthday dad!
P.S. I got my button machine today!!!!!

  3. Yay! A happy birthday to your dad!! Your King Cake looks a whole lot better than mine did when it arrived! FUN!!!

  4. Oh man! I am very sad now that I, a resident of Louisiana, did not even get one taste of King Cake this year. I even attended a Mardi Gras Ball! There is just no excuse for that. Now, who will find the baby?
