Today was my husband’s birthday and so first thing this morning, I had Jake making him a card. He was hard at work while my husband was still sleeping when our of nowhere he said, “are we making him a cake?”
“Well, I don’t have any cake mix” I said. “Maybe we can go to the store later and get one.”
Then my way too smart kid says “Mommy, maybe you can use the stuff in the cabinet to make one.”
So I used my handy dandy laptop, searched for “make a cake from scratch” and voila!
RECIPES! Including one for frosting and we had all the ingredients!
Jake was ecstatic. He mixed everything himself and picked out the colors and the decorations (yeah so they were leftovers from the kid’s birthdays…).
It was a little dry and heavy for cake but it had a GREAT flavor. And Jake was very proud of his cake!
Happy Birthday babe!
