I guess I just can't control my kids. I really want to make ONE cake myself- ONE, the penguin/igloo cake, for a party.
I can't keep them away. Yes, I've tried giving them their own, but the white and black is all over and it just takes one little touch to mess it up. I tried sending them outside for a while, but it is cold and windy.
They want attention , which , I guess is more important. I'm the only one that really cares about the cake, I can stick plastic penguins in it and everyone will still like it. I'm lucky to have them . I guess I feel better

Understandable. As much as we love the little darlings, sometimes we wish they would just go away. But then they do. Enjoy them now, mom, even when they drive you nuts. icon_wink.gif

This is precisely why I only work on my cakes when my kids are asleep! It helps to spread the work out over several days.

I've thought about working on cakes when they are asleep, then I have no time with my husband, and hat does not work for me. So I'm happy but I still have no cake.

My hubby and I like to watch a lot of tv/movies (yea, we're not very creative) and since my kitchen and living room are connected, we usually watch a movie together while I work on the cake. This works for us, but I know it's not for everyone.

What if you're hubby took them out for ice cream/movie etc.. for an hour or two so you could work on your cake? Or maybe a sleep over at a friends house? I totally understand trying to sneak in a little "you and cake" time, it's hard!
