    What a sweet and thoughtful grandson to never outgrow this wonderful memory you created for him. Nice work on your part and what a wonderful young man.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Your cake is great and your grandson is greater for letting you make him this cake.

    Ha Ha! I told him I would probably hang myself on the bungee cord, or whatever it is. I don't need a broken hip. It's bad enough he has me playing "words with friends" on my I-pad. His mom (my daughter) just groaned.

    Your cake looks so good I sent DH to market to get me some white cake. I love the cake you made. Decorating cakes is on my bucket list. Ahhh, cake is my weakness...

    I've decorated those cakes before, so I know what you're talking about with the arthritis... The cake is really neat, though!!! What a special relationship you have with your grandchildren... a treasure!

    Hey, you're in my back yard! I love doing the cakes, but getting harder as I get older.

    Yes, noticed that you are in Glenmoore, so thought you would recognize Kennett Square. I may be one of the few on the Quilter's Message Board who actually have been in Glenmoore :)

    I hope you didn't blink. Kennett Square is a huge city by comparison.

    The cake is really great but I think that the best part is that he invited you to go with them to the rock climbing place. Must be wonderful to have that kind of relationship with your DGS!

    Awesome looking cake. I wish I could do something like that but I have no talent in that area. Best wishes to you and your DGH. Jeanniebelle

    I think he knew I would decline. I have been his and his brother's on-call caretaker since they were babies, and I am the one they call when they are sick. Their mother (my daughter) always worked so I always did the carting, and even helped out with school activities. They also think it is cool when I drive up to the high school in my pickup truck.

    Have a great weekend!
