Happy Birthday Ben! It's hard to believe you are twelve today. You were born on this first full day of Spring, a day of new beginnings, hope and wishful sunshine. Of course, in true Oregon style, it is snowing this morning. However, I believe when you get home from school, and see this beautiful cake, crowned with your beloved Kit Kats, your want of a perfect weather day will melt away. Is this not perfect for you?!!
Dad and I are so proud of the boy you have become. We couldn't be more thankful for a son that is kind to others, helpful and a pleasure to have around.
Congrats to you for excelling in school and enjoying life like you do. Words cannot express the blessing you have been these twelve years. Today is just one day of the year we celebrate the amazing person you are. All the gifts you receive today will not compare to the gifts you give those of us around you.
We hope you enjoy your birthday as much as we enjoy you!
I first saw this cake over at my friend Lori's blog (Recipe Girl). I knew right then it was going to be the perfect cake for my Kit Kat loving son. Many versions of this cake have been done around the web, but this one is by far my favorite. Lori has LOTS of great recipes on her blog and her first cookbook comes out next SPRING! I can't wait to get my hands on it!! So excited for her!
Happy Birthday Ben!!!
