Forgive the exclamation points I’m going to pepper through this post.
Mr. 12 turned into a teenager!
I think I might be more excited than he is!
Every parent says the following but it’s so true: I don’t know where the time has gone. Looking back, time seemed to crawl when he was a baby. But it sped up when he started kindergarten. By the time he turned 10, it was going fast. And just yesterday he started middle school, or so it seems. And next month, or so it will seem, he’ ll be heading to high school.
I used to call him my vanilla baby because he’ll always take vanilla over chocolate or any other flavor. Now I have to call him my vanilla teenager. (Who is this kid? He comes from two hard-core chocoholics?)
He wanted cake for his birthday–not pie, not cheesecake, not key lime pie-one of his favorites, just a cake, preferably yellow or white. No cupcakes! Apparently cupcakes don’t count like birthday cake. And he wanted a cake from a bakery. I would have loved to have baked him a cake but I’m working a lot right now.
So, we ordered a white sheet cake with white buttercream icing with blue and yellow accents. It was every bit the sugar rush it sounds like.
But, I thought perhaps you have a birthday to celebrate and you could use some links to good cake recipes so here we go. I will warn you though, in honor of my new teenager, these are only links to yellow and white cake recipes 🙂

Tell me, have you ever made a birthday cake from scratch? How did it turn out?
p.s. Who’s got advice for raising teenagers? Please, I beg you to leave it in the comments. I’m going to need every possible trick up my sleeves.
