a pirate birthday

New Year's Eve is coming... and in this house that pretty much means only one thing: little m is having a birthday!  While planning out what kind of cake to make for the big 1, I realized I never put up pictures from big M's birthday. I can't post about Miles before I get to Matthew, so here's a quick look at the cake and cookie topper I made for this adorable face....

So cute, I can hardly stand it.

He specially wanted a pirate party this year... which amounted to a pirate cake and making everyone wear eye patches. As it was mostly grownups at his party, it was pretty entertaining! 

I knew I didn't have time to make a bunch of cookies so instead I went for one big one. It has two sticks attached to it that are stuck in the cake for support.

In case you couldn't tell, he was pretty pleased with his cake!

I've got another party to plan so no lengthy explanations here... just a cookie stuck on top of a cake. And Matthew couldn't have been more excited... Easiest. Cake. Ever. Clearly I didn't even bother to make the frosting neat... I figure ocean waves are choppy, and Matthew is 4. We're good.

 Now on to the little one...
