Birthday Cake Surprise!

Think this is mashed potatoes and gravy?
Take a closer look...it's CHEESECAKE...
 
...and it gave my kiddo a big surprise for his birthday!
 
 
My baby boy turned 18 on Sunday.
 
He's a Thanksgiving baby and he has to be one of the pickiest eaters on the planet.
 
He hates Thanksgiving food...especially mashed potatoes...but he loves cheesecake...
so as soon as I saw this idea from SheKnows.com, I knew I had to make it for my Zach Man!
 
It's just cheesecake topped with caramel sauce and chopped chocolate,
but it looks just like mashed potatoes and gravy!
 
I had asked Zach countless times what kind of birthday dessert he wanted me to make him (he doesn't like birthday cake, either), and he finally just told me to surprise him.
 
Boy, did I ever!
 
This looks so much like the real deal that Zach could barely bring himself to taste it.
 
Here's a little peek at the fun we had with it:

This has been one incredible year, and I just can't thank you guys enough.

I have always wanted to design stationery, and I had hoped that my designs would be something that you all would love, but I never imagined how fulfilling this would be!

The notes of joy and excitement that I get from you about how I helped to make your celebration so special is probably one of the most rewarding things I could ever experience.

So, from the bottom of  my heart, thank you.
