pink cake

ryan's birthday celebrations have been postponed until tomorrow night since he spent his big day flying to an interview in new york state. you'd think being on a plane/at various airports for a majority of the day is no way to spend a birthday, but this is ryan we're talking about. more on his co-piloting adventures later. seriously.

for now, a play-by-play of the ever-famous pink cake: 31st edition. 

the cake, in all it's fire-hazard glory. i didn't double check at the time, but i think there are really 31 candles there. 

ready, set:


no really, go!! oh, you mean these are "twinkle" candles - the kind that you have to blow out over and over and over? for the record, i actually had an identical look on my face. it's the moment i, too, realized they were twinkle candles. it seriously was not planned. but i got a good laugh out of it. 

no worries. he apparently has the lungs of a strapping 29 year old. those candles were no match for him. 

*disclaimer: all photos taken with my iPhone in the semi-dark.
*disclaimer #2: i am aware this is hands down the ugliest pink cake i have made to date. i'm over it.

Cakes don't have to be pretty. Just yummy. Pinterest has completely ruined the point of cakes. Ha! PS--I have that cake stand and love it. :)

You really know how to throw a party: candles, cake, eclairs, hockey date. Looks like it was a fun celebration all week long. Happy 31!
