C turned 33 last September 8 and we didn’t get to celebrate 😦 but I made him a basketball themed cupcake and cake that we shared among friends.
His office big boss was in Dubai on his birthday week, he went home late to attend meetings and entertain guests who flew from Thailand and London. He instead had birthday dinner with them, to which V complained “Why no daddy? It’s night time and happy birthday today.”
He’s not into big celebration for his birthday, and was even not too keen to bring the basketball themed cupcakes (above) in the office. “Ma why did you have to make yourself too busy forming fondant (he hates fondant) when all I wanted was plain chocolate cupcakes with chocolate icing.” When he saw my sad face, “Love, I just don’t want you to get tired. Thank you for the cupcakes.” Yes, he’s appreciative and sweet that way. I also want to make the cupcakes pretty! Would it not be more odd if I designed a 33 y.o grown man’s cupcake with colored sprinkles instead?
Month’s before his birthday I already had a cake design in mind and when he informed me that he won’t be home for dinner on his birthday, well I just decided to bring the cake to his basketball game it would also be our potluck contribution.
I had a feeling that he would once again complain if I put in a “happy birthday” message on the cake. He doesn’t want that kind of attention, it was after all a basketball game and not a birthday party.
Kid’s took turn to blow the candle and each of them felt like it was their birthday. V insisted that his friends just borrowed the cake while telling everyone “It’s daddy’s cake. I help Mommy make it”
To the man who never fail to make me laugh after annoying me to bits. V’s best friend, play mate and best daddy. Everyday I thank Mister God for giving us a blessing in you.
