MY OLDEST IS 18! As parents we wonder what will it be like when, my child is this, or when my child does that. Well I now have a child who is 18 and about to begin his senior year of high school. I already knew what kind of cake he would like, it has been the same for as long as I can remember….ANGLE FOOD cake with strawberries and whipped cream. Since I just make the box version(way cheaper with the price of eggs), I wanted to still do something special for him and something he would not expect.
He is a hard-working kid, has worked as a farm hand for 5 years. So I do not see him much. His typical work day 7:45-5, he will come home to eat then go to some sport activity. This week it has been football camp from 6-8, so what other way to celebrate turning 18 than with your coaches and teammates. I contacted the coach, who was cool with me providing treats and offered me to put them in his classroom while the guys practices. The sweetest phone call came at about 8:15…THANKS MOM for the cupcakes!!
