we celebrated my dad’s birthday yesterday. 

my mom made his favorite cake….chocolate with cherry pie filling between the 2 layers of cake. 

we girls, (mom, sister & myself), were left to the decorating.  YIKES! 

first, the icing tips didn’t fit on the tube. 

so then, we tried the ‘icing in ziploc bag with tip sticking out the corner’… TWICE, the seam of the bag ripped and icing started to ooze out of the side. 

but my sister wouldn’t give up!  she somehow held the tip against the tube opening and somehow, she was able to squeeze out the icing….attempting to make the shape of a football.  (dad loves the Browns) 

anyways, despite the fact that decorating the cake was a disaster, by the time we cut the cake and piled it on our plates with homemade icecream, chocolate toppings and M&M’s… was delicious! 

sometimes the foods that LOOK the worst, taste the BEST!
