Edible Wednesday: Back to School Cakes - A Time to Celebrate!

When my daughter was old enough to go to PS I had my reservations letting her go, but knew I chose a great place to give her new experiences and find new friendships. But the letting go was horribly sad for both of us. That was the one emotion of myself that I was not expecting at that time - I was ready for a little breathing room (or naps)! To get us both through that approaching first day, I realized I had to plan something fun, and give her something to look forward to!

It proved to be my smartest mommy moment to date! I made her a cake and said we were having a "First Day of School Party!" She left the house with excitement and as I left her I reminded her to be excited for her awesome first day party and her awesome Pre-School cake! We haven't gone as crazy since (the "party") but, we all still enjoy celebrating the first day of a new school year with some yummy cake! Thinking of the milestones brings tears to my eyes and a lump in my throat - so while I go grab some tissues check out some of our cakes, purchased or otherwise attempted to make....(the one craft I can't do is cake decorating!) lol!

It's never to late to start your own tradition! Celebrate your child's first day of school with a yummy cake too and let me know how it goes! Have a yummy day!

(I will add next weeks cake to this post after the photos are taken and the cake has been devoured!)

Love it! I made brownies tonight for my sweetie to enjoy when she comes home from her first day of Kindergarten! I won't be there to take her or meet the teachers as I have to go to MY school and greet my students. :( We have another tradition we started this year - we bought a tree, planted it in the garden and took her picture beside it. This way, I can make sure to have a picture for the scrapbook album of her each Sept as school begins.

I love this tradition. I saw something similar (The Giant Cookie) on HowDoesShe. My little girl is only 13 months, but I can't wait to start traditions like these with her. In fact, it's why I started my blog and what I hope it will be about once it's established (traditions, family fun, etc.). Great idea!
