He Wanted a Road Cake

Guess who is the big 7 years old today?
 
Pierce loves roads, and requested a 'road cake'.  He is slightly obsessed with roads and maps.  I made my chocolate sheet cake, and went from there, using a buttercream frosting to do the roads and grass.
 He was thrilled with his construction style cake, full of roads for driving, and chocolate rocks (which I found at Dollar Tree).
May year 7 be full of fun and adventure for him!

I am kind of the same way, I like to look for the old original wagon roads that often parallel the current roads. A branch of the Carolina Trail goes near our house and I can see parts of it on the way to work. There is a section in waid park if you guys get out there, they had a sign up at one time.

It's adorable! It makes me think of one of the rugs with the roads on it everyone had in the 90's.

That cake looks almost too good to eat.

Which if you knew about my love affair with cake says a lot.

Way to go, mama!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PIERCE!!
LISA, YOU HAVE BEAUTIFUL, GORGEOUS CHILDREN. PIERCE IS VERY HANDSOME.
YOUR TWINS ARE SUPER AWESOME TOO.
GIVE A HUG TO YOUR PRETTY BOY, PIERCE FROM ME, and TELL HIM THAT POET STARRY SAYS HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PIERCE!!
YOU ARE SO BLESSED, LISA.
THANKS FOR POSTING YOUR HEARTFELT COMMENTS IN MY BLOG POSTS!!
TELLING YOU SOMETHING, I'VE BEEN GOING THROUGH YOUR OLDER POSTS, and FOUND THEM SO VERY NICE and INTERESTING. YOU SEE I HAVE A BIG HEART FOR ANIMALS and CHILDREN. THEN, I WAS READING ABOUT YOUR LOVING HORSE, PHOENIX's HEALTH ISSUE. WE HAVE CATS AT HOME. SO, WE ARE ALWAYS IN CONTACT WITH VETS. SINCE I AM OVERSEAS, I'LL ASK OUR VETERINARIAN, IF HE KNOWS THE DRUG "DOXYCYCLINE". I'LL CALL HIM LATER, and SEE WHAT HE SAYS. IF THAT KIND OF DRUG IS FOUND IN OUR PLACE, THEN, WE MIGHT MAKE FURTHER ARRANGEMENTS, IF YOU WANT TO. ONE THING I MAY NEED IS YOUR HOME PHONE NUMBER, SO THAT I CAN CALL YOU, and TALK ABOUT YOUR HORSE HEALTH ISSUE, and IF WE COULD BE OF ANY HELP. MY HUBBY IS A PHYSICIAN SURGEON OVERSEAS (IN THE AMAZON RAINFOREST AREA). I AM PRAYING FOR YOUR HORSE TO FIND THE SOLUTION. YOU CAN LEAVE A COMMENT IN MY BLOG POST ABOUT THIS. I WILL NOT PUBLISH IT, IF IT IS A PRIVATE MATTER. I'LL KEEP IT FOR ME. SO, YOU CAN DO THE SAME WITH THIS MESSAGE FROM ME. KEEP IT FOR YOUR PRIVACY, and DON'T PUBLISH IT. I CAN SEND YOU AN EMAIL, IF YOU WANT TO CONTACT ME, LISA. I AM AN ANIMAL LOVER & ADVOCATE.
(((HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PIERCE!!)))
GOD MAY BLESS YOU ALL, LISA!
WARM HUGS,
POET STARRY DAWN.
