I think about your daughter’s third birthday party and what flavor her Princess Cinderella cake should be.

I think about the two dozen cupcakes your son needs for his fourth grade class by tomorrow…and that you just found out about today.

I think about how sometimes you just don’t have the time to make an intricate dessert for your Saturday night dinner party because the 3-year-old has gymnastics on Thursday and the 5-year-old needs a costume for the school play and the baby hasn’t slept in what seems like months.

I think about the hours you spend perusing recipes on Pinterest to find that perfect chocolate souffle for your fifth anniversary dinner.
