It is Thomas the Tank Engine in edible cake form for your viewing pleasure. Can you believe this cake cost half as much as my wedding cake which fed over 100 people? It definitely was a splurge, but you only have a first day of school EVER once.
Jacob's first day went allright. They are learning letters and what sounds they make but Jacob already knows that. I think he is a little ahead of most of the kids, the stuff he brings home is like the stuff he did last year and, of course, he can read. I don't know if any of the other kids can but I felt my chest puff out when he went around the tables and read all the kid's names off their tags. Yep, that's my kid! He might not be the best behaved but he's smart!
As you can see the cake was a big hit. It came in a huge box shaped like a train shed and I think Jacob liked that better than the cake itself. Adam was just thrilled to be eating cake. We had blue lips and blue teeth afterwards and my fingernails are still a blue tint today. It took two baths to wash it off, makes me wonder if it's safe to ingest. When I went downstairs this morning I found blue frosting on the pantry door and all over the table. I clean it up and
it mysteriously reappears! I won't even go into the technicolor diapers I have changed today. The best part is that I can reuse these Thomas pieces and make this cake on my own. I won't have to bake that dreaded cake pan Thomas with the three hours of frosting stars EVER again! It was almost worth the price just for that!
