A Small Oversight

by Kimberlee Stokes Affiliate Link Disclosure B

One of my children has a strong affinity for doughnuts. Actually, this child may have a slight addiction, but there is no twelve step group for doughnut recovery.

In honor of this child it is only fitting that we had a doughnut birthday “cake” this week. Just one little problem: said child is not turning “1″.

This is what happens when mom forgets to buy the birthday candle. :(

    THANK YOU!!!! my daughter turned 18 yesterday. do you think i could find the pack of candles I bought YESTERDAY for her cake LAST NIGHT? noooo. So, I dug out the “8″ candle from my son’s 8th bd in March (and his sister’s from march 2 years ago, and God only knows who else’s 8 bd….), had a spare 1 candle… but the wick in the 8 was GONE. so it said 1 (flame) 8 (no flame) with 8 candles DH dug up some place and lit. RIGHT up til the long stem lighter died. LOLOL.

    Thank you GOD that our children <3 us anyway!

    This reminds me of the time that I decided I could make one of those barbie dress birthday cakes and use a regular new barbie and it looked great until we lit the candles and found out that barbie hair is extremely flammable …. :-D

      Yes, good idea Misty!

    • Dineen

      Who cares about the candles? She loved the doughnuts, right?

      And I love Misty’s “the kid is #1″.

  • Erin

    Yes, good thing they still love us anyways… I mean it’s a doughnut cake… who wouldn’t love that? Who cares what the candle says? :) Looks so yummy right now!

  • Rebecca Bunnell

    When my daughter turned three, I had 3 tea lights on the cake… ;)

    • Christy Panzarella

      Uber cute idea.

  • HeatherP

    At least you didn’t forget the birthday overall. :) And you were thoughtful enough to make it a donut cake. I’m sure the sugar rush made the child forget all about the candle. ;) Have a great day! Oh, and thanks for reminding me to make sure I have candles for our bday party this weekend!! :)

      So glad that I could be of service. :)

  • Samantha Wagoner

    What an awesome idea! When my birthday rolls around again, I’m going to make a doughnut cake. They can put any candles they want on it as long as it’s doughnuts they’re putting them on. LOL What a great treat for your kid. You’re so creative!

      Thanks Samantha, but I did steal it from a friend. :)

  • Anita

    Nice to know I’m not the only one! My son just turned 11. Forgot to buy candles so he decided we would use two candles since “8″ and “3″ equaled 11. One day I’ll look at that picture with “83″ on the cake and wonder what on earth I was doing!
