We have a really fun tradition in our house. On birthday morning, we have cake for breakfast. The husband usually goes for a coffee cake or fruity cake of some sort.
The girl wanted yellow cake with peanut butter frosting.
For her party she chose mini cupcakes with chocolate or vanilla frosting.
Cake #2 (or just lots of cupcakes)
We have a family party the weekend in between the birthdays. Aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents come to share a meal and eat some cake.
The boy chose carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.
The girl wanted a Heath bar coffee chocolate whipped cream cake .
The boy's breakfast cake was banana with peanut butter chocolate frosting.
The boy's party had a Lego theme this year. You know what's coming.
Cakes #6 and 7
It's two cakes cut up and frosted to look like Lego blocks. (I'll have a "how I did it" post soon. I don't have one on why I did it, but that's a whole other thing)
What all this really means is that I just did not have it in me to make Dorie's Tiramisu Cake. I'm sure it was delicious. I feel especially bad because Megan of My Baking Adventures has become an internet friend of mine. Sorry, Megan! I promise I'll try it another time! Go check out her blog to see the cake in all its wonderful glory.
Oh, and if baking all those cakes wasn't enough, it's Teacher Appreciation Week. I'm on the committee. That means a breakfast casserole for Monday morning, Buttered Rum Meltaways for Tuesday lunch, and Ginger Cheesecake, chocolate dipped bananas, lemon lime frosted cookies, and browned butter brown sugar shortbread for lunch Thursday. WHEW!
I'll be back next week for an amazing sounding Tartest Lemon Tart.
