Pierce is 9

Last month, Pierce celebrated his 9th birthday.  It was a fun day, even though half of the usual family members who come weren't able to make it this year for a variety of reasons.  Pierce wanted a Minecraft cake. 
Thank goodness for those minifigure packs - they make the cake making process much easier.  I did a white cake with a middle layer of peach jam, buttercream frosting, and cinnamon graham crackers around the edges.  My dad declared it his favorite of my cake creations.  With salted caramel pretzel ice cream, it was very tasty.

Here's hoping Pierce has a great ninth year!

Happy Belated Birthday to Pierce!!! I can't believe he's nine! I thought I had read that wrong on my blog side bar. The cake sounds delicious! The kids must love your creativeness. :) Next year will be double digits! It was an emotional birthday for me when our Kyle turned 10. :)

Happy Birthday to him! If you guys lived close to us I'd invite you over. I bet our boys would have fun. They love Minecraft. They've only played it twice, but Mica's read lots of books on the game.
