Anyway, I have big plans for his birthday party. Sure, he'll have two friends there, and he won't really get that the whole shindig is for him, but that's not going to stop me. I'm already planning treats and decorations and food. Oh, and the cake. Because, last time I checked, Ethan isn't really a cake person. He is, however, a pumpkin muffin person. Which leads us to the first of my birthday test runs: the cake and frosting I'd like to use for Ethan's birthday cake.
I mean, people on Pinterest are obviously cottoning on to something what with all the pumpkin bread/muffin with cream cheese pins I see out there. Granted, this has been apparent to me for years, but what with this new and tasty cream cheese frosting recipe, it just makes the whole affair even tastier than before.

Good thing there's a strict self-imposed budget on this whole thing. Mama likes her event planning way too much...
