Tablet cake and gift
This week my baby turned 17! I can hardly believe it. I just want to squish him back down into a toddler. This year I was able to do something I haven't been able to do for him in years.... get a great gift that was a total surprise! Somehow he always ends up knowing what his birthday gift is going to be.... but not this year!
I surprised him first with this cake I made, and then with the gift. Can you tell from the cake what it was? I couldn't afford an actual iPad but I was able to get him a decent tablet with a bonus I recently received at work. He was thrilled!
I had to bake and decorate the cake at a friend's house so Justin wouldn't see it and know what he was getting, so I just decided to give it to him there. We also grilled hot dogs and Justin's favorite rainbow sherbet.
