IT'S A CAKETASTROPHE! 🍰

Kathy Thornburg

Making my kids’ birthday cakes has always been important to me and always memorable- even if they don’t go exactly as I had in mind. Now that my kids are old enough to want to have input on the details of their cake, it is even trickier! My biggest piece of advice…beware of letting your kid scroll through Pinterest to look for cakes they like. THEY WILL CHOOSE THE MOST DIFFICULT CAKE ON THE INTERNET! 😆

Milo's 7th birthday party did NOT go as planned. 🤪 Watch the video to find out what went wrong this year with the birthday cake plus a look back through cakes over the years. 🎂

Now, I’ve made many cakes over the years and have acquired many gadgets and supplies in that time. Here are some of my all time favorites and essentials for getting started.

My Favorite Cake Supplies:
Americolor Food Coloring
Revolving Cake Stand
Cake Leveler
Decorating Tips
Decorating Bags
Offset Spatula
Square Pan Set
Round Pan Set

My absolute favorite decorating tip is a 1M found HERE. Mine met its match in the garbage disposal. 😥 It’s definitely on my list of things to buy!

 
 Every year is special, but I was especially fond of Milo’s pirate birthday cake.

SHE WROTE A BOOK | First Week of Homeschool!

Kathy Thornburg

We've started homeschooling! Our first week's theme is all about BOOKS- how to write a story, what are the parts of a book, who writes the pictures, and more! Follow along on our new adventure. Watch the video to see how our first week went and for our recommendations for books to use with this theme.

She has been working on her own book and slowly adding to the illustrations. We talked about how many different ways you can create the pictures for a book. She has been drawing them by hand and also learned how to create characters on the computer. Here’s her main character, “Eden, the Superhero Dog.”

We made a big change! Eden is no longer in preschool and we are now on a new journey through homeschool. This is an exciting and slightly overwhelming undertaking, but we feel it's what is truly best for our family.

I'd love to know your best homeschooling tips and your ideas for interesting themes. We are having a great time and look forward to sharing this journey with you!
