I just wanted to wish my son, Zachary, a happy third birthday on Saturday, June 4th. He is the size of a 4-year-old but reminds me daily that he is really only 3. I love him so much and I am so proud of him every day. His language is developing, he is potty training, and he is always teaching me new things about myself (and my patience).

In honor of his birthday, I made an orange and yellow layered birthday cake with one of his favorite characters, Wubbzy. I used the rainbow layer cake recipe but only used two dye colors and it worked out perfectly. One of the layers didn’t make it, i.e. I dropped it, so this was a 5-layer-cake. I can’t wait to cut in to it and I’m sure Zach feels the same way. He was snacking on the yellow fondant while I was making Wubbzy. I will definitely be hiding this cake away until Saturday.
