Birthday Prep.

From Meg's Cake Baking Academy:

Did you check to see if you have enough flour? No, of course not. You are not an idiot, you always have enough flour.
You don't have enough flour. Better hope Keri is home and will let you borrow a cup!

You are doubling the recipe. Do you need to go and get a calculator to make sure you don't screw it up? No, of course not. You are not an idiot, you can do basic math.
You can't do basic math. Good thing your mistake is fixable. This time.

Does the recipe call for chocolate chips? No, but it should. DUMP IN A WHOLE BAG. Now lick the batter off the spoon. It has raw eggs, which are a pregnancy no-no.
But those rules were made by squares.

So now all the bunny shaped cake and regular shaped cupcakes are baking away. This is only the third time in the three years we've lived here that I've fired up both of my (teeny tiny) ovens. It's a fact that makes me feel better about the decision to go to a single oven/range with a warming drawer, and then the convection microwave over head. I am also looking forward to having an oven big enough that I can take a regular cake pan out without automatically having my hands brush against the oven's sides.

Also, here is a video of the big sister to be, loving on her stuffed animals, and singing Twinkle Twinkle. I know the audio is not great, but turn the sound all the way up and you should be able to hear her:
