Luke had a cake contest through cub scouts. They had to bake a cake at home. No store bought cakes were allowed. The boys had to be active creators in the cake process.

All of our boys wanted in on this process because when there is cake involved, there's a sudden willingness to help in the kitchen.

Luke is a Bear this year so we did our best to model the cake based on the cub scout Bear.


Luke helped with the mixing and he decorated the cake with Kevin and me. It was a true family effort.


We followed the rules. We are rule following kind of peeps.

He was so proud to win 2nd place for Best in Show.


There's one catch. I have to admit that I am a bit suspicious about the level of participation of the 1st place winner.



Just sayin', friends. Just sayin'.

All kidding aside, we are so proud of Luke. More importantly we bid the highest on our own cake so we could take it home and enjoy it together.

Much love,

Are you kidding me with that first place winner??? Maybe that kid helped out by staying out of the kitchen for 6 hours. Good job Luke and family :)

There is no way a KID made that crazy/amazing santa cake!! Just saying, is right!!! I love what your guys came up with.

C'mon! That second cake totally looks like a kid helped make it. NOT.
Your cake is way sweeter since it was obviously made with a ridiculous amount of love.
Congrats! xo
