At the after Christmas sales, Christine bought a “Santa” pan for me. It is the type that Santa is sitting up.
She got all fired up that I should make a Leprechaun cake for St. Patrick’s Day. (note a raised eyebrow on me as I say that!)
So! I baked a Dunkin Hines chocolate cake and Christine and I dove in! I wish we had asked Bill to get a photo when we were 1/2 of the way into this project. ( It is hard to work when you are laughing that hard)
There was leaning and finally Santa-Leprechaun pitched forward. Gram arrived in a nick of time (no pun intended) and applied ‘gold’ from ‘the pot of gold’ to the base of Santa-Leprechaun.
To which he responded by tipping back!
We settled him down for a long winter’s nap and finished him up.
Topped him off with a proper hat.
Lots of laughter and well, he doesn’t look half bad! Chris says it is the beard, but I think it is the hat that gives him that Leprechaun look.
I definitely need to work on my technique with the green coat frosting!
Jack couldn’t believe his eyes!
(What every good post needs is a photo of Jack. :))
This is a special year for the celebration of the “March Birthdays”. Julie celebrated her 30th !
We surprised her on Friday the 7th.Jules was surrounded by loving family and friends. 🙂And was helped with blowing out the candles by Will, ever eager to help out with cake. 🙂
On Saturday we pulled together another party for the “March Birthdays” proper.
Chowder, clam cakes, steamers and lobster were the main attractions for dinner…well for the afternoon of munching. 🙂 Tina has a fabulous recipe for chowder that was once again a big hit.
Bev, Dave and Great Gram arrived for the festivities.Julie appreciated her new step ladder.Will loved his new Knight Armor.And we all enjoyed the grand kids. 🙂
