My son turning 1 was like the most special event for me ever, its like feeling that its my best birthday till date. I had to have a big bash and called everyone I knew. Offcourse there were skeptics who were saying, "Why such a big thing? Would Dev even remember this event?". But to me it is a big event and totally worthy of celebration. The best part is he laughed and played the whole time and didnt cry one bit!!! That just made my day!
"I want a biiiiig ONE for the cake "
"...but for 150 people, its going to be a huge board size..." she said
" uhh, ya, okay then put it on a base, that should cover a piece for everyone" I said.
As I flipped through some pages I saw a square cake with a beautiful rainbow made with coloured sugar and just fell in love with it.
"...hmm cant we put this rainbow on the '1', it would be nice wishing him a rainbow... a promise for a bright colourful future" I said poeticly.
"hmmm..." she said.
"Oh please use warm yellow, red, orangy colours, he loves warm colours, no dark cold colours...no blaring blues, no dark purple and bottle green please"I said
"hmmm..." she said...
As I left her house, I thought to myself why do I make it complicated for her every time and tell her to add bits of this and that. Having a big 1 cake with a rainbow and only warm colours, is going to look like khichdi!!!
On the big day, as I was decorating the hall, the cake came in and I ran to see it...., and it was just amazing...... I was speechless!!! Thank you Aisha!
