Birthday Cake and Place Value

Yesterday was my birthday. My birthday cake needed candles and my husband was making due with the random numbers we have collected over the years which made the numbers for my special day higher than needed. B, my youngest did not like this at all and decided to take over in preparing my cake. We didn't have the number two, so using her current place value learning she solved the solution and my cake was perfect!

Since I am home recovering from surgery, I decided to make it myself this year from Cooking Light. This is a Glazed Lemon Buttermilk Cake and it was delicious! Served it with rainbow sherbet and it was a sunny, spring treat. It reminded me of the Bundt cake in a box I use to make as a kid with my mom.


  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MANDY! I hope you are on the road to recovery from your surgery!

  2. Happy Birthday! It's a pleasure to read your blog, and I hope you and yours enjoy the time completely. Continued recovery!

  3. THat cake looks oh so yummy! And I love how B solved the candle problem :)
