Nathaniel turned 5 last week. He spent his birthday party playing in the park with some of his best friends. The party featured all of his favorite orange foods, Doritos, Cheetos, Cheese crackers and Oranges. Lillian practiced her burgeoning balloon animal making skills creating balloon creations for all the little kids. In a major change in birthday protocol, Nathaniel decided he wanted a lemon meringue cake instead of the usual Swedish Princess Cake. Eric took the challenge in stride, creating a layered cake with layers of lemon custard and cake, covered in a billowy toasted meringue. As always with Eric's cakes, it was both delicious and a true work of art.
