82nd Birthday

My grandfather turned 82 on Friday, so this is why I’ve been AWOL for a bit. On Friday morning, my mom & I started baking, my mom baked a birthday cake & I baked cupcakes. I decorated 24 cupcakes as well as the birthday cake and it took FOREVER, but it was worth it to see my grandfather’s little face when blowing out his candles (video is uploaded to my personal facebook account, for those with access!).

We had no clue what to buy him for his birthday, so we ended up getting around 10 DVD’s for him based on the history of Airplanes, World War II and Ancient Cities. He really liked those and it gives him something to watch when he’s not snoring his head off :P

On Saturday, my two aunts came over with ANOTHER cake, this time a huge double chocolate one so we ended up with 2 huge cakes and 24 cupcakes hahahaha needless to save, we have tons of leftovers!

It was a fun weekend, except the few drama’s that happened, which needs a whole other blog post in the coming days… I’ll leave you now with pictures of cakes & more cakes & some more :P
