We celebrated my husband’s 52nd birthday last night. The man is 52. Yep, I married up. We have a nine-year age difference in case you were wondering. Originally the birthday dinner plan was to go to a fancy-schmancy restaurant that we typically save for birthdays. But, in light of the fact that two boys were nursing sore mouths from having their wisdom teeth pulled, he opted to postpone the fancy dinner for softer foods at home.

Isn’t he a great dad?!

All along, however, I had planned to bake him a special cake. It’s kind of a family tradition to bake and decorate a fun cake for my peeps. I’ve covered a lot of territory when it comes to themed birthday cakes. I’ve made a Hockey Cake, Angry Birds, Merida, and even a Disc Golf cake. Ha!

As the kids have gotten older, they’ve often opted for Chocolate Cheesecake or Lemon Ice Box Cake instead of a frosted, themed cake. For FishPapa, I decided that it would be fun to play off the 52 years. Since we love cupcakes, particularly those with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting, that’s what I settled on.

Win a Gift Pack from offered me a chance to do a little shopping in their online store. I selected a bunch of cupcake supplies, including a cupcake stand, piping bags, and piping tips. The girls and I had a great time baking yesterday afternoon, but the extra fun cake when it was time to decorate. I used dark cocoa powder in the buttercream. It was pretty darn amazing.

One cake mix made 52 mini cupcakes and two smallish size cakes. It went perfectly with the cupcake stand from

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
