Happy Belated Birthday, Son #2

Son # 2's birthday landed smack on the same day we were traveling back from Ohio to the Great White North after a wee summer vacation and a family reunion. As such, he didn't get a special cake like I do for all the kids on their birthdays. So, when we got home he chose a cake pan at the library (yes, the library), signed it out, and on a weekend trip to the cottage Son #1 made and baked the cake and I did the decorating. The cake is sitting on a slightly nasty cookie sheet that is perfect for the cottage but which you'd probably replace if you had it at home. The cake was a hit with the whole family (cousins, aunt, uncle, etc.) and with the birthday boy.

Wow! I always knew libraries were awesome, but I didn't realize that some of them had cake pans! Books...and cake?!?!? It's too good to be true!

I can't believe you decorated that cake! You did an amazing job.

Your son is becoming quite a chef/baker. The cake looks very professional. Which cake recipe did you use for the cake? I've tried several from various sources with usually poor results.

Mmmm, that looks awesome! I love your blog and enjoy trying out your recipes.

PS- it's awesome that you can check out cake pans from the library! I wish I could do that at mine!
