Cake Boss Jr.

While we were in Iowa we had the treat of cable TV.  One night, Austin, Taylor, Lynne, and I watched a few episodes of Cake Boss. 

Austin was amazed.  He loved it.  When we got home we were happy to find out seasons 1 and 2 of Cake Boss are on Netflix which we can stream on our TV anytime we want.  So, that night Rob, Austin, and myself watched 3 more episodes.

That sealed the deal.  Austin wanted to make a cake....now!  I convinced him we could wait until the next day while the girls were napping but we did our research bright and early the next morning.  He settled on a scene from Star Wars (shocking).

As it turned out, Austin was not all that interested in baking or decorating the cake.  Until it was time to add some of his Star Wars figures.  At that point he took over.  He sat there and rearranged his figures for about 20 minutes.  It was a battle scene of Mustafar where Obi-Wan and Annikan duke it out near some lava.  I'm fairly certain the Clones and R2D2 have no business being in this scene.  The more the merrier I guess.




And then the Cake Boss wouldn't let us eat the cake.

I can't remember how we finally convinced him we were eating that cake, but we did...and it was delicious.

We have two other little bosses in the house who are waiting (not very patiently) to decorate their cakes.  Something tells me they might actually help out though.
