Works for Me Wednesday-Backwards Day
Today we are doing backwards day on Works for me Wednesday, instead of giving advice you are asking for advise so here is my problem.
I have a special Birthday problem. Almost all of my kids have birthdays too close to holidays. This year my oldest son's birthday falls on Thanksgiving. I think we are going to have a special cake at the Thanksgiving Dinner just for him. I also want to have a day set aside just to celebrate his birthday. I have such a hard time with his birthday because it is always on a holiday weekend and his friends are always busy or gone, so friend birthdays really have not happened for him much. My twins were born on December 27 so right after Christmas and all those gifts it just does not seem special to them? So, I always make them a cake and we just have a small family party. So Birthdays are really hard around here! Anyways here is what I need help with. I want to know where I can find great cake ideas to make for my kids birthdays that also represent the holiday. Like for my son's Thanksgiving Birthday, I want to do a cake that represents Thanksgiving and Christmas for my twins. I am definitely not a professional cake maker so keep that in mind. Also, any ideas you have on celebrating birthdays close to the holidays would be helpful too!
