Proud Momma

My son who turned 16 on the 9th wanted to bake his own b-day cake for his birthday. He didn't want any decorations or candles- he is getting too big for that stuff. LOL

I'm so proud of him. He did it all on his own with no help from me. Sure it was a box mix but this is a big accomplishment for him since he struggles a little with reading. Besides how many 16yr old boys can bake a cake. Shoot my own hubby can't even do that.

Brendan loves to cook and even makes supper for the the guys when I am at work. It is teaching him to be independent and I know he wont starve when he is older and out on his own.

BTW the cake is a red velvet cake with vanilla icing. And it taste pretty darn good.


  1. Great Job!!!! My kids tried to make a cookiest he other day and were having a hard following the directions. They turned out great, but they had a hard time cooperating.


  2. Yay for Brenden!!
    Tell him he can make a Birthday cake for me, too!
    (Although I would prefer he not try to cram candles on mine... he might burn the house down!)

  3. WOW, great looking Cake!

    Happy Birthday!

    Take Care,

  4. I think that's great! Boys should know how to do all that stuff too...our son cooks and loves it and does our laundry even! I tell him that his future wife will love me for it and I think he's proud of himself as well! :)

    Happy Birthday to your son! Tell him the cake looks delicious!
