Here is a scene of very important work. David requested a red cake with red frosting for his birthday. I thought the easiest way to accomplish the "red cake" part would be to make a Red Velvet cake mix. I didn't realize just how red the batter would be and this is the reason why my son is not wearing a shirt. I knew the birthday boy would want to excercise his birthday right to lick the bowl while the cake was baking. And I knew my boy would not be neat and tidy about this privilege! So yes, there should be a picture of David with red cake batter all over his face, and his chest, and his arms... but really I was too busy cleaning up the mess and I was also a little grossed out that he looked like he had blood all over his face. That batter is something else!
