guess what I am making this weekend

my great nephew turned 3
and I missed his big day
so I want to make him a special belated cake
you see........
his Grampa is in the construction business so when i saw this I knew it was 
"the cake" to make
but of course I have to put my spin on it


on Wed the 30th it will be 25 years my mom has been gone
we will celebrate remembering her at Landons house with the family
I know she is watching over us
I feel her presence all the time
and I hope she is happy watching her grandkids
and Landon, her great grandson 
( the Only boy) the other grands are all girls
Landon hopefully will be getting this cake
AND it will be placed on a 13 x 9 to make it into a money cake
ever heard of those?
I will bake a 13 x 9 yellow cake
bake the round chocolate one
on the 13 x 9 one I will take a small box and cut out that dimension on the cake to insert the box
inside the box will be dollars taped end to end (short end)
and fanfolded
with one end sticking out just enough to cover it with a topper
one of those trucks maybe will do the trick
and then the chocolate construction cake on top
hubs always wants to ruin my cakes by taking a piece so this is prefect!
hubs happy
auntie happy
Landon happy (he LOVES money)
and one birthday down!
anyway, I am hoping to bring this to my sister in laws
as we remember my mom
and hope she is watching as one little
3 year old reinacts his birthday celebration
love you Landon!
love you Mom and miss you terribly.
