A Bonfire (Cake)
We didn't have a big birthday party for Harris this year. Instead he celebrated with his two best friends while riding roller coasters at an amusement park! That evening, we had family over for a birthday dinner and bonfire.
Harris loves to make fires, he made one every chance he got over the summer on our trip, so a bonfire cake was perfect for him. It was easy to make (I followed these instructions to make the flames) and turned out so very cute. Funnily enough, making this cake for Harris made Frog's Hollow feel more like home than anything else has done. I suppose that speaks to the power of cooking for, and feeding, loved ones.
We ate chili around the fire and after cake and singing there was even some fireside skits and songs!
