i call my niece (2 y.o) the buttercream bandit. she will eat the entire buttercream border

i can literally walk in put the cake on the table, put my bag down and the border will be gone.

when i go to visit her, even if im empty handed she just keeps saying "cake"

I would just be thanking my lucky stars that it was a practice cake and not some three tiered wedding cake! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

My grandson dug a chunk out of one of mine last month before I iced it. Boy! That buttercream can cover up lots of things! Hope whoever got that piece liked icing real well. icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

I will gladly take that little 2 yr old...IF you take my 18 yr old!! icon_twisted.gif Yep...that's right...a complete even trade. No bartering, no refunds, no exchanges, no store credit...nothing. icon_lol.gif

You cannot call me that nite, wailing and screaming and crying saying you want your little orangutan back. She's mine. The 18 yr old has hair just like that, so when you start having 2 yr old withdrawal...just wake him up, refuse to have ANYTHING in the house to eat, tell him you don't have a cow in the backyard to replenish the milk...and you will have your 2 yr old back....articulate, wicked hair, screaming, tantrum throwing 2 yr old. icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

ok.....NOW do you wanna trade?????? icon_wink.gificon_wink.gificon_rolleyes.gifthumbs_up.gif

It's so funny I'm reading this now....I made a cake "just for us" tonight, you know, in a 13x9 glass pan with a lid, nothin' fancy...and as I'm mixing the oh so delicious chocolate syrup frosting to put on top, MY two year old came up and said "Yummy cake, Mamma." I said "Yes, Mamma's makin' a yummy cake for Logan to eat after dinner." And he said, "No, Mamma, cake is yummy NOW!" When I looked over at the table where the cake had been cooling, I see a Logan-sized fistful taken right out of the middle! Oh well, it made a good spot for extra frosting! Thank God for little boys!

Thanks for giving me a good laugh, i really needed it.

lol you bet you can!! I know exactly how you feel!! Oddly enough after reading this thread I had to go and hug both of my little monsters, of course they squirmed and fussed and both said "Mooommmyyy we are trying to play our gaaaammmeee"..lol icon_lol.gif I guess I have just gotten to that point where I just love to tourture them with hugs and sloppy kisses. I think when they get old enough to drive I am going to go out and buy a really hot sports car...and have "Moms car" put on the license plate just to torture them icon_lol.gif They'll NEVER ask me to borrow it icon_wink.gif

Oh my goodness! First of all, your cake is beautiful and I'm sure your little varmint is even more beautiful. I'd take her in a heartbeat but.........

You'd miss out on all the good stories to blackmail her with when she gets older. My son was a varmint too and looked like an angel when he slept. Everyone said you could see little devils dancing behind his eyes but I could never see them. icon_wink.gif

He's almost 20 years old now and we still love to tell stories on him.

Oh man you all make me laugh! And boy did I need it. I was really sad about that cake.

spongemomsweatpants - oh I got the funniest/worst visual with those eggs and soap everywhere!

I suppose I won't sell her off afterall. I love her so much it hurts, and nothing can replace her or her hugs. And I'd miss the "entertainment" she provides daily. Never a dull day when she is around. icon_biggrin.gif

Though DH did give pause at that million dollar offer! icon_wink.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

Thought I'd share a peek of her in full post-nap-orangutan mode....

Oh yeah. DH and I already have a nice collection of "blackmail" stories for her. DH cannot wait to tell them! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

She's the most beautiful orangtan I've ever seen!!!

I actually think she's really smart to break into the cake and slash it up with the propeller thing. Maybe she was just trying to cut a piece.

She is so cute! Who could get mad at a face like that with those beautiful eyes? She's really smart - probably used the propeller blades so that she wouldn't leave fingerprints!

Thank God for when little boy's daddies get home from work!!

I caught mine today with a bag of royal icing squirting it straight into his and his cousins mouth. Of course I laughed and proceeded to give his cousin a fake tooth where he recently lost one. They are only little once...I am already sad that he is starting preschool next week, I am prepared to cry because Mama's best friend will be gone all day. I need to get out more often.

My darling 2yo son now has a toilet fascination. So far I've fished out clothes, megablocks, 2 spongebobs, a tube of toothpaste, a small book, and one shoe.

It's amazing how one child is so different from another (sibling). Our first one was fairly easy (behavior-wise)...... my younger one is just incredibly stubborn and independent (and hard-headed).

Gotta love 'em.

I feel for you my son know 4 1/2 used to put his fingers into the cakes icon_cry.gif everycake i had it was terrible, but then i started to sit him down and make little rossets on his 10 little fingers as i decorated and finish one area of the cake i told him that he can have one finder fulled of frosting.

ps he learn how to count and know rossets pretty good lol. icon_rolleyes.gif

It's funny know he just watches tv when i tell him that mamy has to do a cake for a lady which means if he is good he will get a treat. Don't we love out sugar bugger/ icon_biggrin.gif

That is why God made mother because we love and forget all about the bad times

LOL I was thinking the same thing. What kind of child could have left that kind of track LOL shouldn't it have been a big hunk that was missing instead of those neat little slash marks? LOL.

Its ok I have a three year old lurking in my kitchen that trys not to bother me when the flour is flying so he comes into the kitchen ever so slowly and ever so quietly and says MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA and you would think the house was on fire "Hi, Thomas and Percy are fighting again." (his toy trains) its never an emergency, the house is never on fire and why can't he tell his father? Do you know how many things I have dropped, broken, had to start over cause I lost count . . .

She only bothered it because she wanted to emulate you. (That's why she used the toy blade.) At 3, I actually started letting my Nadia play with her own fondant and icing (smearing it on) her own cup cake. It gave her time to be creative and not be so intrigued with what I was doing. Now, she wants to go to cooking school! thumbs_up.gif

Try it. It may work. Good Luck.

ok that pic says it all...how funny is she!! First let me just say adorable, just adroable. 2nd let me say...you can just see in the way she holds her self how head strong she is...lol
You curse it now but when she is older and is set on being the leader and not the follower you'll be real glad you are raising a strong independant woman...one who you will torture with tales of her wild youth at every given oppurtunity thumbs_up.gif
You're doing a good job Mom and Dad icon_smile.gif

If you find someone to take her, let me know, b/c I have a 2 year old to drop off, too. I'll pick him back up when he is potty trained!

I think our children are twins that were separated at birth by accident! Very sad about your beautiful cake icon_cry.gif I'm just waiting for my cake disaster day because I'm sure she's plotting right now!!

lanibird Posted 10 Aug 2007 , 2:58pm

Strong, independant, and a leader is her to a T. She's very petite; she'll be 3 in December, but she's just barely growing out of the 18-24 month size clothing. She holds her own against her 6 year old brother, and then some. icon_twisted.gif She's the one you see on the playground leading the other kids in their play. I wouldn't have her any other way. icon_biggrin.gif

DH and I have now come to the conclusion that, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, she does have manners afterall. She was obviously trying to cut herself a neat little piece, as opposed to just grabbing a hunk like she usually does. lol thumbs_up.gif

And I'm seeing an emerging pattern here; many of our first-borns are even-tempered, almost easy children, while the #2's are little devils in disguise! icon_wink.gificon_biggrin.gif

I reccomend a padlock on the fridge, and bells on her shoes so you can hear where she is at all times! icon_lol.gif

I could consider a trade......I have a son that is 3 1/2. He loves to help me! He decorated his first cake last month. He's pretty good. He is the stubborn, head strong, second child you all are talking about! He's the oppsosite of yours! He's the size of an average 5 or 6 year old and refuses to eat most everything (except cake, cookies and icing). If it doesn't smell or look wondeful, it won't cross his lips. If you get it across them, watch out for it and everthing else to come back at you! I am hoping with his size he will be my retirement someday with the Denver Broncos or Dallas Mavericks! Then there is his cousin that will be four this month. I have him 50-60 hours a week (for free mind you...ugh!!!). When it's just him, I give him a cucake and he'll leave me alone! You get the two together and watch out world!!! They also stand there while you are decorating with their heads tipped back and their mouths WIDE open waiting for a mouth full of frosting from the bag! The minute you turn on the mixer or food chopper, etc, watch out for your toes.....because step stools will come a runnin'!!! My 9 year old daughter on the other hand has taken all the classes with me. She is mature and has always been pretty easy (as long as you don't want her to clean house). She can be a great help but she can be a challenge too! Did I mention, mine are angels while they are asleep too!!!!

Oh well, what can we do but love em with sloppy hugs and kisses like suggested earlier!!! icon_lol.gif

You're all so funny! sounds like we all have the same problem! My firstborn was a little angel until her baby sister arrived 18 months later, I swear from the very beginning they were plotting against me but I was always right there to thwart their plans... now we have baby girl #3 and I can't watch them every second and my house is on the verge of collapse! They've officially joined forces! I still hold out hope for #3, she has a good 2 year separation from #2, so there's not such a bond like the first two... and yes my husband and I refer to them as 1, 2 and 3. Three girls born in 3 yrs and 9 months and they all have H first names and E middle names. It's hard to yell out the right name when disaster strikes. I get a lot of mom, thats not my name But anyway... it was a beautiful cake and little orangutan is adorable! Reminds me so much of my middle one! If they werent so cute, what would we all do?!? icon_lol.gif

Lani, have you thought of listing her on eBay? I threaten to do that to my kids now and again. icon_wink.gif
At least she was practicing her cake-cutting skills and not just smooshing cake everywhere.
She is so cute, you might decide to keep her after all, though. I mean, you DID go through all that trouble to make her and all. icon_biggrin.gif
Absolutely LOVE the idea of the sports car with the personalized license plate!! I may have to use that one!
They grow WAY too fast. My oldest is turning 16 this month, and my baby just turned 3. I'm savoring every moment, as she is the last. Three's our limit!
