a birthday knight

August 30, 2008

Today is a birthday at our house. My middle son has been waiting for this day for a long time. Ever since he got a book about knights and castles from the library, he has been fascinated with all things medieval. He told me he was planning to be a knight when he grows up. He says he can be a page when he is seven and, if he works hard, a squire by the time he is fifteen. Well, we managed to make a little headway on that dream last night when we went to Medieval Times. We all had a great time, and my little Grant was knighted long before he ever imagined.

When he asked me for a castle cake, I knew I was going to have to jump in to the world of decorating with fondant. This was by far the most time-intensive cake I’ve ever attempted, but it was worth it to see my little knight beaming when he saw it.

Happy Birthday Grant!

    About 12 hours of actual work over the course of 3 days. 🙂
