When I was a kid, I loved eating chili at my grandma’s house (probably because she let me top it with as many slices of Velveeta as I wanted, soak it up with bread, and finish it off with two servings of dessert 😉). One day after I’d been gushing over how good her chili was, she told me she was going to teach me to make it myself because it was so easy.

I knew I wanted to do something really fun to celebrate, and I thought it would be hilarious to do an adult cake smash. Since I’m single with no kids of my own to subject to this kind of excitement, well, who better to enjoy a cake smash than…myself?!
