My son is 13 today...and since he has a one track mind...baseball-- every cake, every party is centered around baseball. It's kind of perfect that his actual date of birth coincides with the start of the official baseball season. Every year since about third grade he has been "sick" for opening day of the Yankees. This year it fell on Good Friday and since he attends Catholic School...he stayed well and enjoyed the opening day without missing school.
The cake he requested was a chocolate cake made with Hershey's cocoa. He tells me that a friend in school brought cupcakes to school that "she" made and they were so good. I would have loved to hear the conversation between two 13-year-old classmates. Hopefully my cake meets his expectations.
