I had every intention of finishing my board and batten project in the dining room over the weekend. Husband and I even went to Home Depot on Friday night to pick up some MDF, but the little guy was having none of it, so we went home empty handed. So instead I spent pretty much all day Saturday making a cake for a first birthday party. I thought I could get the cake done in the morning and then finish up the wall in the afternoon. But of course, there were a few mishaps, so it took much longer than expected, and required a few too many trips to the store. Hopefully this week I will have a finished wall to show you. In the meantime, here's the cake that took over my Saturday. Luckily, it all turned out ok.
