As parents we know that most times it is the simple things we do for our kids that leave the most lasting impression. Â The best birthday gifts are often not the ones we’ve spent the most money on, but rather, the ones we’ve spent the most love, care and creativity on. Â The best cakes are the ones we bake, not the ones bought at the market. Â The video below, which has been making the rounds, is a wonderful example of how much joy you can bring a birthday boy with time, creativity and some loving effort (in this case, about 10 hours according to baker/dad Mike Cooper). Â I think you’ll agree with me… as far as cool birthday surprises go, this one really takes the cake!
