Yup, it’s true. We had a wonderful baby party on the weekend before his birthday, and my friend made this gorgeous train cake for him. What an awesome gift! Look at all the detail! That was his first taste of cake and icing. That was going to be it, since we had two Christmas Concerts to go to on Zach’s birthday… But something came over me and I just had to make him his very own cake for the day of his birthday. I envisioned the cake-smashing photo, and I set it all up with the cake and him on the floor and got down low… but it turns out he’s a baby who doesn’t really like icing… either the sticky feel or the taste, I don’t know but he wanted nothing to do with it! Anyway, here are a couple of photos from the two celebrations for my one-year-old. What a year it’s been!
