Tribute to my childhood!

One of favorite items that I still have from my childhood is a gumball machine. I use to be in my dad's office, some how when I moved it ended up in my car. You know how small it is it just fit right in the car and I NEVER noticed it! Oh shhs .... he comes to visit it every once in a while and don't worry he NEVER lets me forget it was once in his office. I politely remind him that possession is 9/10 of the law .... LOL. So with out further ado, check out the awesome CCC I found that made you have to sit thru that story!
Check it out! Ok it's not exactly like my gumball machine but it's a really cool look at CCC's in a good way. The top part of course was super easy since hello it's round and cupcakes are round. The bottom of course is a little lumpy and bumpy which always seems to be the theme here. And those gumballs on top look very yummy I bet better then the ones that have been in my machine for "looks" around 5 years now. Yup I have to get on the boys from unscrewing the top to get into it. You ask how they learned this, a very oh so sweet neighbor boy! Rick won't allow him over anymore, no it's not because of the gumballs! Well back to the very cool CCC I'm sure Lucas loved it, we'll he was 1 I doubt he even knew what it was. Oh well I'll live thru his cake vicariously thinking of all the great memories. I leave you while I think about my memories!

I love it! Here I am writing my 'negative' memories my younger sister always talks about...my memories of a gumball machine is that daddy would not give us a penny for one, cause he said "you do not get something for nothing"...but if i had one, I would fill it with chocolate covered raisins or nuts...

Your so cute with this, and that cake looks good too!

Chef E you make me teary I went to comment early and my machine shut down :(. Most of the good memories of dad for the longest time, thankfully I had a good one of those to make up for the horrible birth mom. I try so hard to just remember the good ones.

Mine is so just for looks it probably would be good if I put good stuff in it. But then I might eat it all in sitting ... LOL

Oh my goodness by daughter would LOVE that. She is OBSESSED with gum and gumball machines by default! Now I'm gonna have to find her a gumball cake since I am so NOT a baker!
