True story #1: My family chooses ice cream cakes over almost any other when it comes to birthdays.

True story #2 – Getting my brother to smile nicely for photos has been a challenge since the dawn of time.

I have no less than five family member birthdays within this three week period every year. That’s not including Mother’s Day, or upcoming Father’s Day.

However, when I saw that Marble Slab had photo cakes that I could order online, I knew exactly what was going to happen.

This was.

And if you think I’m lying about my brother’s photogenic qualities, think again.

It’s like he can’t help himself.

Oh, he’s a such a good sport, this younger brother of mine. We love to tease him and as the youngest of three kids and having two older sisters, you can imagine the hard time he gets year-round. So I chose the cutest, funniest picture that I had of him to make up for having two older sisters that give him the gears.

When I asked him what flavours he wanted for his birthday, he said chocolate with more chocolate. Typical Wyatt.

Done and done. I’d never ordered a cake online from Marble Slab, and let me tell you, it won’t be the last. Online ordering is the way to go, my friends. I ordered it and forgot about it until I had to pick it up five days later.

First, I had no idea that you choose the ice cream, then you choose two mixin’s to get mixed into it. Um, can we say kid in an ice cream store? How fun is that??

So I chose Chocolate Birthday Cake ice cream, with Oreo’s and Snickers and let me tell you, that wasn’t easy. There are over 50 flavours of ice cream and 30 mixin’s. I was almost paralyzed with indecision, but at least Wyatt had narrowed my choices with “chocolate”. The ice cream is all 100% Canadian Dairy, but there are also choices like sugar-free, lactose- free and low-fat yogurt. Again, I’m not quite sure how I even decided with all those choices.

Then the fun part came.

You can choose your own photo and if you like, choose a border for that photo. I chose the “Aged to ‘Perfection” and then one of my favorite goofy photos of him from a family vacation.

So I chose everything, clicked a button to send it and voila! They hand-crafted my masterpiece in store and I picked it up this past Sunday.

My only demand is that they brought the cuteness (AKA my niece) with them and that Auntie got to spoil her rotten as usual.

I think my niece takes after her dad when it comes to photos. We’re all yelling “Ellie!! Yoohoo!” and waving our hands like maniacs, trying to get a nice family photo of Wyatt, Jill and her, and she just covers her face like a little monkey.

Then she was really distracted.

Ohhh…hey….what’s this?

Now this made me laugh. Notice how she’s basically got Dad by the throat, pushing him away while she’s digging into that cake. She’s more like her Auntie than she knows.

Trying…oh so hard to master this whole spoon and ice cream cake thing…

Now to me, there is nothing cuter and more special that watching a toddler dig into an ice cream cake. That’s my #marbleslabmoments. Well, that and my brother’s goofy face on the cake. I can’t help it, that’s my job as the oldest child in the family.
