One Whole Cake

Today, as has happened in several previous years, my boys reminded me that it is time for their July cake.

Why?  Because, these sneaky mathematicians have reasoned:  DS3 is on his half birthday, DS2 is on his one-third birthday, and DS1 is on his one-sixth birthday, all in July.  Naturally, they pooled their fractions and determined that Mommy owes them one whole cake.

Who can argue with that?  :)

ETA the results of the combination of brotherly love, mathematics, and chocolate:


  1. Ha! That's awesome. What kind of cake will it be?

    1. Thank you!! Chocolate with chocolate frosting! (Is there any other kind...?) I like the cake recipe from the Hershey's cocoa can, and I kind of make up a modified chocolate buttercream recipe with some kind of liquor as part of the liquid. I used to use Godiva, but it has corn syrup and G is allergic to corn, sadly. I will try to upload a picture soon; it's in the oven now.
