I love going all out for my kids, family, and even friend’s parties. I thought I would start posting some pics because I know when I get party planner’s block and ideas aren’t flowing as fast, it helps to browse online and get inspired by others that put a lot of thought into their parties (I love a world that shares ideas).

Another Use For A Penis Cake Pan…Doh!

First off, if you are penisphobic (pretty sure that isn’t a word), STOP reading now because this post mentions the word several times.  I’ll try to keep it as PG-13 as possible.

Years ago when I was pregnant and hormonal, 7 to be exact, I was cohost of a friend’s baby shower and volunteered or got volunteered to make the cake. Pregnant me thought it would be fun and entertaining to make a penis cake since the guest of honor was having a boy. It was entertaining when the more conservative guest were trying to guess if the cake was…uh…maybe a rocket? Nope…it’s a penis.  Oh okay. It was fun when all the guest (it was a coed shower) had to eat the cake and say how good it was…I forgot all about my 24/7 morning sickness for awhile.

Fast forward to the present, I have never used the penis pan again.  I didn’t think it through. There aren’t many occasions in a married girl’s life that call for a penis cake. I was going to try to sell it, but I don’t know if I’ll get reported for an ad: “Large genital cake pan for sell. Will send pic to serious buyers.”

Today is my husband’s birthday. Happy birthday, Mister!! He is a huge Simpsons fan. I bought some Simpsons figures at the dollar store and was going to put it on a sheet cake. As I was pulling the ingredients out to bake the cake, the penis pan in my Goodwill box caught my eye. No! I was not donating it to Goodwill. I threw it in there when my kids had their friends at the house. Anyway, I saw the penis pan standing upright resembled Homer’s head (no puns intended). Yes, yes I did make my husband’s birthday cake with a penis cake pan. For not being a professional, I think it turned out pretty good. What do you think?

Penis Cake Pan
I used 1 box of cake mix, baked for about 35 minutes.
I cut off about 3 inches from the…bottom area to use for the eyes and nose. I used 2 different size shot glasses to cut around for the eyes and nose. I used frosting to stick them to main cake.
I used white frosting for the eyes and frosted the bottom to look like a shirt.

I used a little chocolate frosting mixed with white frosting for Homer’s mouth area. I added yellow food coloring to the rest of white frosting and frosted face. I finished it off with black icing for the eyeballs and 2 strands of hair.

Happy Birthday Josiah!

Today Josiah turned seven years old! I have a second grader now…where did the time go? It doesn’t feel like it was already seven years ago when I was blessed with one of my best friends, Josiah Cristian. I rememeber not being able to sleep for the first few months because I would wake up and want to stare at him all night.  His existence changed so many parts of my life, he made me want to be the best mom I could be, and I wanted to show God how much I appreciated his wonderful gift.  I want Josiah to use his good heart to be the very best version of himself.  I hope he gets all the best parts of his dad and me. I hope he doesn’t make a lot of the same mistakes his dad and I made, but I’ll be there to give him good advice, listen to him, never judge him, and love him unconditionally. Happy birthday baby boy.  You may not be a baby still, but you will always be my first baby. I love you Josiah.First Baby
