Some of you may have seen my taunting pictures on Monday and have waited to see the inside of the fabulous cookie dough cake that I made. Well, you are going to have to wait just a little longer (read: middle of this post for all of you desperate cookie dough lovers). 😉
This weekend we finally got to hold my brother’s birthday party since we had to cancel the original date on account of him being sick.
I spent most of Saturday making the birthday cake, doing some last minute shopping with my brother for ice and frosting, and doing a little tidying right before all of the teenage boys came!
For supper on Wednesday we ordered pizza. Lots and lots of pizza. Not for the faint hearted either with double pepperoni and bacon.
Later on that night after it stopped raining all of the boys went swimming while my mom and I snuck upstairs to watch some Netflix.
When they were done outside it was time for cake!
Cutting the cake… Almost there…
And finally the inside, complete with an amazing thick layer of buttercream frosting and cookie dough balls.
Setting up an assembly line my mom sliced the cake, my dad plated them with forks and I… took pictures 😉
Just one more shot.
Okay. One more…
After the cake my mom and I watched another video, this time Rookie Blue, one of my favorite tv shows ever.
Soon after I hit the hay but I’m pretty sure a majority of the house stayed up much later. Doing what exactly? My guess- watching horror movies and playing video games.
The food of course didn’t end with cake though. As soon as my parents were up we got to work on breakfast.
My dad cooked up the bacon on our griddle.
My mom baked the Pillsbury cinnamon rolls.
And I helped my mom cut of the bottoms when said cinnamon rolls got burned. 🙂
All turned out well though!
And that wraps up this special edition of WIAW!! Thanks to Jenn for hosting.

What is your favorite birthday party food? Before my allergies I would definitely have said cheese pizza!
What is your favorite kind of birthday cake? White sheet cake, strawberry, funfetti… Or this cookie dough cake I imagine if I was able to actually take a bite! 😀
How do you celebrate your birthday these days? Mine was spent at school. Nothing fancy whatsoever.
Have you ever been to a birthday party where either the host or guest had food allergies? I have never, but as an allergic girl myself I’m of course curious!
