Noah Turns Two


My little one turned two today and I am still coming to terms with the fact that he is growing up. Although he proves to us everyday by accomplishing a new feat or sentence that he is no longer a baby, I still sometimes see that tiny bundle that we brought home two years ago when I look at him.
I wanted to do him an airplane cake as he is bananas over airplanes, and this is what I came up with. In case you can’t tell, it’s a little airplane flying in the clouds.

I made an apple spice cake, layered it with maple butter and iced it with cream cheese frosting.
I wasn’t happy with the overly-dense apple cake part, so I won’t post the recipe, but it was a nice combination of flavors.
And Noah ate it, which is what matters most.

Happy birthday, darling.

  1. Happy Birthday Noah! Looks like your Mama made you one FUN cake! And don’t worry Aimee, soon you’ll have a new little bundle to hold while you enjoy Noah’s little boy antics:)

  2. Hey give that little dude a high five for me! I’m sure I would have enjoyed the cake too (if I had been invited).

    Blaise has got the same fascination with planes and helicopters. Unfortunately all the trucks that go by our house sound like jetliners, so he’s always asking to “look plane?”

  3. Aimee…what a lovely cake, and it sounds like it was the perfect choice for the little airplane enthusiast. Happy second birthday, Noah! 🙂

    My little man turned 2 last month, it can be a little hard sometimes to watch your baby turn into a big boy.
