The Things We Do...


It was 2.5 hours of baking... another 2 hours of making and squeezing cream cheese icing out of a piping bag...

But I had committed to a "surprise cake" for her birthday - so surprise cake she was gonna get!


And when she saw it for the first time - her face said it all...

The things we do are worth it!


She was so excited to know what it was... and the giant puppy paw with the teal trim fit her to a T!


Did I lose sleep over it? Sure...

Did I give myself carpal tunnel squeezing the icing out? Almost...

Was it worth it? Man... I'd do it again 500x over to see her smile like she was!


Later on - when out of earshot of her "cool friends" - she pulled me aside and said "Daddy - thank you so much for making me this cake!"

And my heart melted and she locked in a custom cake for next year too!

Always do the things for them because trust me... they are ALWAYS worth it!
