I want to tell you a story about when I was a little girl. The Easy Bake Oven was the toy to have in the late 60's and it was all I wanted for Christmas. Well my mom shopped everywhere and it was all sold out. I then asked for it for my birthday and never got it. As I grew up I always joked with my mom about the one gift I never got. We would laugh and I would make my mom feel guilty (not really!) Well this summer my mom, the kids and I would go garage sale shopping on Thursdays. At one of the last garage sales in the summer we drove by this house and in the driveway I saw the box. I told my mom and she got out and bought me the Easy Bake Oven (for $3!!). It was finally a Dream Come True. I finally had what I had always wanted!
So as soon as I got it all cleaned up I wanted to make my first cake. Jack and Mom watched as I mixed the batter and poured it into the little pan. Jack was so excited to get his own personal size cake. We followed the directions and put it into the oven and we waited and waited. When it was time to take out the cake we were so excited; however that was short lived. As soon as we saw the ooey gooey mess we all started to laugh! It was terrible! So I once again cleaned it all up and boxed it up and it is now in storage in the basement. I will not give it up because it holds such wonderful childhood memories, and now extremely funny memories as an adult.
Afterward I made Jack cupcakes by the way! He was happy with that!
A Dream Come True!
This layout is dedicated to my childhood dream. I had so much fun making the layout! I used the Doodlebug Bon Apetite line. Love the bold colors that only Doodlebug can do.
