Standing Ovation (Recipe: Chocolate Covered Oreo Cookie Cake)

Ella, who will be 3 at the end of May, is officially potty trained. We have been off and on working on potty training for the past 2 months, but it wasn’t until the last 2 weeks that we have seen progress. She is now at the point where she will tell us that she has to go to the bathroom, she stays dry all day and all night, and it seems like she is finally getting it. My goal was to have her potty trained by the time the baby was born, so I am thrilled (and knocking on wood at the same time!).

For the past 2 months, every time Ella will go on the potty, whoever is home will rush into the room and start saying “Yay!!!” and clapping. Everyone, even without telling them to, has been making a big deal out of her success and telling her how proud we are of her. Finally, on Saturday, she went on the potty and the whole family went in and clapped and caused a big commotion. With an annoyed look on her face, Ella held both of her hands up and said “Stop with the clappin’…stop with the clappin!” It was hilarious, like she was finally done with the over abundant amount of excitement and attention for doing something that she now knows how to do!

You know, I believe some things deserve a standing ovation, and in my opinion, being done with diapers is one of them! Another thing that deserves a standing ovation is blogiversary’s. Nicole, who is one of my favorite bloggers, is the talent behind Art and Ailoi as well as Miss ‘N Nick Designs. I absolutely love it when people who have an amazing creative talent take that talent and build a successful business out of it. Nicole, on top of being a loving wife and wonderful mother, has done just that. She creates beautiful stationary.  Somehow Nicole also finds time to cook and maintain a wonderful food blog, which has just celebrated its 1st year. Congratulations, Nicole!

Nicole asked people to bring an appetizer or beverage for her blogiversary, but I decided to be different and make a cake. This Chocolate Covered Oreo Cookie Cake is so simple to make, so rich and delicious, and worthy of a standing ovation itself.

  4. This looks amazing. YUM

    My 3.5 YO is finally potty trained during the day (we think the fact that we moved 3 times in the last 1 1/2 yrs caused the delay; we are ready to try at night but have a week vacation next week so I want to wait until after). Anyway the first few times she went I yelled “woo woo!” The next time I said something else, like good job or whatever. Or maybe clapped. Oh no, it had to be woo woo. She got very upset. Now she yells that she has gone and won’t stop yelling until she gets that woo woo.

    *sigh* :)

  8. I am craving this cake right now!!

    This made me laugh, it hits so close to home! Tayler is 2-1/2 and she’ll be 3 in August. We have been trying so hard to potty train, mostly because she gets too many “owies” (rashes) when she goes in her diaper- probably from the greater variety of foods she is now eating. Even though she can tell you how, and why, she needs to go on the potty, and we praise like crazy, she loves to hide under the ottoman or squeeze behind the couch to do “#2″. And as soon as she does it, she say’s “I’m sowwy mommy”. It’s so doggone cute! But not cute enough to have another- she #4 and I called it done!

  9. We have just started potty training – what an adventure! I put a pull up on her yesterday for the first time and she loved it…still peed in it, though. Your post reminded me that we need to really play up the praise.

    And the cake is so yummy!

  17. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Kristen! This cake is such an amazing contribution to the shindig! I am excited. I really appreciate the participation, and such kind words to boot! You are the best.

    PS. My son just turned 3 and has shown no interest in the potty at all. NONE. Until about a week ago when naked, he just went and sat down on the toilet when he had to go. Now if he has underwear or pullups, he would just pee. But if naked, will not have an accident. ??? I haven’t worked on it yet but I think I need to stay home for 3 days and just keep the kid nude!
