The weekend before his birthday, I went to get Colin from Sunday school and he handed me a tub of frosting and a large (undecorated) cake wrapped in foil and sealed in a zipper bag. See, his Sunday school teacher does this for each kid. She makes two cakes and they eat one in class. The other cake comes home with the kiddo so they can have even more cake!
The first thing Colin asked to do (after church and lunch, of course) was decorate his very own cake. I showed him how to spread the frosting evenly across the cake.
For the most part though, Colin decorated the cake on his own. He did an awesome job!
Do your kids decorate their own birthday cakes?
