Birthday roundup

Filed Under Prizes 

I mostly lounged around yesterday, which was exactly what I was in the mood to do, so it was a great day. The hubby had purchased this cake mix while he was in Cost Plus World Market and in the afternoon he set out to make the cake.

It called for (2) 8″ pans or (1) 9″ pan. The pan I had was 9″ but neither one of us felt that (2) 8″ equated to (1) 9″ so he did the 9″ plus a few cupcakes.

Just before we left for dinner he said, “I better go frost the cake!” and headed for the kitchen. I got dressed and got down the stairs, took one look, busted up laughing, and headed back upstairs for my camera. I simply had to document the occasion. These are the kinds of things that happen when Dana cooks.

He never thought about putting the cake on a plate before frosting it.

So that’s the way it was served, and it was a good cake, but where were the crushed-up peppermint candies? Not in the box. It was a “serving suggestion.” As was, apparently, the peppermint flavor. We tried hard but failed to detect it. So it was a pretty good chocolate cake, and a very good birthday.

scoopsThank you so much to all who left me birthday wishes. I’m so glad I did this… I feel like I’ve been at one big birthday party for days! I so appreciate all of you for reading my blog and being my appliqué friends.

Until next time,
Kay
