Cake Boss

IMG_3020A few weeks ago, I caught my son watching Netflix without permission. I guess it's more accurate to say that his sister caught him and then ratted him out. Hell hath no fury like a little sister denied Netflix only to find out her brother is watching in his room.

I told him I didn't want to hear any of his excuses and took away his iTouch for a week.

When I returned it, he asked if he could watch Netflix and I said he could and he was so excited because he wanted to watch Cake Boss.

That's right - the show my kid had been sneaking was a show about fancy cakes.

Many of you know that we are planning to get married and our kids are at odds over what should be served at the reception - a cake or a cookie.

Miguel has taken his vision to the next level and imagined the cake he wants us to have. He brought down a written note for me the other day and I am posting it in its entirety with his permission:

I'll start out by letting you know that I really know everything there is to know about cakes. This is due to the fact that I watch a show called "Cake Boss" where they create amazing cakes. Well until today I forgot all about the cake for my parents' wedding. Well since I just had learned all about cakes the vision became clear. I want a 3 tiered cake made from chocolate sponge filled with vanilla buttercream. I want the tiers to be covered in red fondant and covered with white roses. Most people would have white cake with red roses but I would like to mix it up. I would like droplines painted gold on all tiers and to top it off I would like models of me and Zeca made out of modeling chocolate on the second tier while my parents are on the top holding hands. I would like to get this cake from Carlo's bakery in Hoboken, New Jersey.

He will be quite disappointed that Carlo's Bakery won't be bringing his vision to life but I hope we can find a decent wedding cake for the occasion to please our very own little cake boss. Bossiness has never looked so adorable.
