The sleepless night....

... and 6 cakes!

Okay, I admit, 2 hours of sleep... so an almost sleepless night!

I should have started earlier. I should have made less cake. I should have prepared better. I should have went to bed!

It was all worth it when, after 2 hours of sleep, I brought Isaac into the dining room and showed him the cakes. He took a few seconds to look at each one individually, looking back and me and grinning... that made it worth it! He knew they were for him... well, maybe not, but I can pretend he is a genious!

Featured below is the Sesame Street gang... or at least my version of them, completely edible and guaranteed to make your child bounce off the walls from the sugar or the red dye from Elmo's fur! (Exactly why the party ended quite shortly after cake!)

and the happy birthday boy.... with his personal cake to devour....

In Progress...

So, after a night of long baking... holding my eyes open with toothpicks...

I have six 1/4 sheet cakes baked, three chocolate and two vanilla.

I have "carved" three of them... thankfully needing an "I" because one cake flopped on one side! I HOPE to finish tonight (and not morning again) so that tomorrow can be cake-stress free!

Will post pictures soon!
