Guess what? Today is the manfriend's 35th birthday!
Because we're probably somewhere on our road trip to my brother's wedding near San Francisco, I wanted to make the birthday boy his favorite cake early.
So Sunday night, I busted out this special box of yellow cake mix I'd had in the cupboard for a while. This guy loves his yellow cake with chocolate frosting (because it reminds him of his childhood) so I always try to have a box on hand.
Luckily, he's not too picky about how it looks as long as it tastes good!
OH, and I only had one egg left in the fridge (it called for 3) so I improvised and made two "flax eggs." Thank goodness for our Costco size bag of flax mix. It saves me time and time again!
Then I made cocoa buttercream frosting with not quite enough powdered sugar, but Pete thought it still tasted good. As you can see, we pretty much devoured half the cake right away so it couldn't have been THAT bad.
Happy Birthday, old manfriend! I love you and can't wait to see what the future has in store for us.
Cheers to 35 years!
What's your favorite kind of cake? I love chocolate with a raspberry or choc filling or white cake with lemon poppyseed. Ooh and anything with coconut flakes on top is a winner too!
Bah hahaha - the cake I made him for his 33rd bday was muuuch better looking that this one. Next time...
