While I thought my jumbo-cookie-baking skills were amazing, turns out, they dulled in comparison to a freaking giant ocean scene cake. You know, the kind you see on Pinterest. Here’s how it went down.
My daughter and her friends were in the back seat. The subject of birthday cakes came up. A totally fun topic for 10-year-old girls.
Girl #1: One time, my mom made me an ocean cake with waves and buoys and boats and mermaids and fish.
Girl #2: One time, my mom made me an ocean cake with a whale and a surfer and candy all around the edges.
My daughter: One time, my mom made me a giant cookie.
That conversation SO reminded me of Charlie Brown and his trick-or-treating endeavors. He got what? Yeah, a rock.
I’ll take a giant cookie over a rock any day. It’s all relative.
