The Best Cake Options For Last Minute Parties (Delivered Right To Your Front Door) + GIVEAWAY!

Do you ever feel like life is swallowing you whole? I’m busy, you’re busy, we all know everyone is busy. In case you missed it, not only do we have six bio kiddos; my husband’s mother is also staying with us, and we have had a 1 year old foster love for the past four months too. Life is definitely crazy.

Let me reassure you that we’re all doing well, though. Fostering is just one emotional roller coaster after another. So it really drains a person mentally and emotionally. You’re asked to take in a child (or children), love them like your own, and plan to send them off whenever the judge gives the green light. — And you never know when that call could come. So as we’re working to help our little one overcome some of the things he experienced during his first year of life, June (and a couple birthdays) snuck up on me!

When’s Our Birthday Party Mom?

Well, just a week ago, our 11 year old son asked me when his (and his older brother’s) birthday party was happening. –Oh crap.– I hadn’t even thought about it yet. So I scrambled to the calendar and because of farm work, commitments, plus a bunch of grad parties (We have a slew of them this year!); there were just two options. And so there we were, six days out from what was going to be their birthday party day!

So Much To Do, So Little Time

First up, we made up the guest list. Because we were on such a tight timeline this year, we stuck with grandparents, godparents, a couple friends who are WAY more like family than some of my family, and a couple super close cousins.

Then, we settled on a menu. Our older son has recently switched over to a gluten-free diet to try to solve some tummy issues so we ended up settling on tacos with all the fixings, a couple side salads, fresh fruit, and fresh veggies.

Finally, it came time to figure out the cakes. In the past, often times our oldest daughter or myself would make the birthday cakes. Unfortunately, her busy schedule didn’t allow her the time and with already prepping all the other food, I just KNEW creating a great cake (or two!) wasn’t in my cards. I would seriously lose any bit of sanity I had left. So instead, I turned to Bake Me A Wish.
