Hubby and I were asked to create a cake for a little boy who was turning 3 last week. They were planning a farm theme, so he assumed it would be pretty simple and agreed. It, of course, fell right between Thanksgiving and the wedding we had to go to, so there was lots of stress and a few late nights put into it. Plus we had house guests that week, so I was up even later trying to straighten the kitchen back up.
The whole fiasco turned into argument after argument with the hubby. He wouldn't consider my ideas, but got frustrated when his ideas didn't work out.
