Who can imagine a birthday without cake–nevermind for a 4 year-old who has once again been requesting a bowling cake for the past year! (He’s already had two bowling cakes in the past!) This will forever be a birthday to remember… Sy turned 4 on July 6th and we wanted to make it extra special since our boy still cannot eat food. His request was to visit his Grammy & Paw Paw in SC and to go to the bowling alley.

I’m mostly posting these pics for anyone out there who has a child with EE. This was a great alternative to a cake. Sy loved it and per usual was all smiles!


Our foodless cake consisted of wrapped boxes filled with fun goodies. Jordan used his mad skills to decorate the boxes into Sy’s beloved bowling cake!


We were able to put toothpicks in the candles and poke them into the boxes.


Still never complaining and all smiles… I love this boy!!


Cutting the first piece…


“Opening” the cake…


And of course, we couldn’t truly celebrate Sy’s birthday without a trip to the bowling alley!!
