It's 6am. DS' birthday party - 5 hours away. I have been defeated by the gods of baking. My first homemade chocolate cake is too small so I have to make another layer. DH had a work party function last night, I texted him to get more cake flour and sugar on his way home. I got up at 5:30am to start baking - he only got cake flour.
We have to miraculously design an under the sea motif on this unfinished birthday cake.
The caramel apples I decided to do at the last minute as a party favor look beautiful. Except I have nothing to wrap them in.I thought I'd just use plastic (saran) wrap but that turned out looking incredibly crappy. The nearest store with those cellophane treat bags is about 25 minutes away. Unless the local Safeway has something but I'm afraid to get my hopes up. Maybe higher quality saran wrap? I was using the awful Walgreens brand.
My house was such a disaster that I had to take a 1/2 day off work yesterday just to get ready for the party.
At this point I'm just drinking coffee and staring into the darkness. I've only had 5 hours sleep. I'm so happy I'm serving mimosas at the party.
Aaaaaand, DS just woke up. It's 6:12 am.
Next year - invite 3 friends to go bowling.
ETA: Did I mention that I"m also making a hot lunch for 15 kids and their accompanying adults?
