All seven of the grandkids are terribly good-looking and well above average. Brandon is the #5 of the seven. And he was so incredibly cute that I just wanted to lick him. He's still incredibly cute, but I am finally over the licking stage. I am, however, not over wanting to bake for him for his birthday. His 3-layer coconut cake is the first of a two-baking installment. Cinnamon rolls later this summer are yet to come.
Here he is, almost two years ago, helping me sort and organize scraps. In the words of Charles Dickens: a remarkable boy.
