The birthday boy (and my love of birthday cakes).

My middle son, Finnegan, turns eight today. He is, of course, super excited about his birthday, and so am I - well, my excitement is tempered by the whole how-on-earth-is-my-baby-eight thing, but still. While we are not extravagant gift-givers here, I do go the extra mile when it comes to their cakes. I love collaborating with the kids on the theme and design (the internet is a huge help, especially Pinterest), and will let them help with the baking if they want to, but I do try to keep them out of the kitchen when it is time to actually decorate, so that there will still be some fun in the final reveal. I guess the big question is, who is it more fun for? 

Here's a gallery of the last five years worth of Nelson kids' birthday cakes.
