2 Chix in the Mix

His Birthday Suit

My father-in-law’s birthday is today.  With all the scheduling around work schedules of my kids and church schedules today we celebrated a day early.  I’m sure he’s still celebrating.  He loves to streeeeetch out the celebrations!  We had a dinner at Outback Steakhouse – my MIL’s treat and then cake and gifts later at their home.  I have a hard time coming up with ideas for cakes for guys.  They don’t seem to like the flowery cakes the ladies like – wonder why? 

So, fess up.  How many of you give your dad a shirt and tie as gifts at least once during the year?  Dads are so hard to buy for.  Here’s my version of a shirt at tie.  Actually, it’s a birthday suit everyone can enjoy.  Pumpkin cake, toffee buttercream with toffee chips filling, fondant decorations – mostly chocolate but some vanilla. 

Keepin’ it sweet!
