Birthday Preparation

A certain two year old in our house is starting to grasp the concept of birthdays. He is very excited that we have been talking about his party and brings it up at least once a day. I decided tonight to ask him about his cake...

Me: What kind of cake do you want?
Ollie: White.
Me: Just white? You can have vanilla, chocolate, banana, carrot, spice.
Ollie: Just white please.
Me: Okay, white cake it is, what kind of icing do you want?
Ollie: White.
Me: Really? Just white? You can have chocolate, cream cheese, vanilla...
Ollie: Just white please.
Me: Those are excellent manners but we can make your icing a color like blue, red or your favorite color right now...yellow!
Ollie: No, just white.
Me: So you want a white cake with white icing?
Ollie: Yes.
Me: Do you want to make it into something? A monster truck? Blue from Blues Clues? Diego? Baby Jaguar?
Ollie: Hmmmm, a white circle!
Me: Really? Are you sure?
Ollie: Yes mama, a white circle please.
Me: Soooo let me make sure, you want a white circle cake with white icing?
Ollie: And my name?
Me: Yeah, we can put your name on it, what color should we write your name in? Red? Blue? Yellow? Green? Orange? Purple? Pick a color.
Ollie: Write Oliver in white!
Me: (laughing and thinking I've got the easiest birthday cake to make - ever!) Okay a white circle cake, with white icing and your name, Oliver, written in white. Is that right?
Ollie: (giggling and clapping) YES!
Me: I think I can do that little man.

Make sure you spell his name just like he wants it, too! I can't wait to have some of CIUH's white cake.
