Check out some of Laura's birthday cakes here.
This is my grocery store-bought beauty:
First let me say that I save all those plastic trinkets on top of the cake and last month was so pleased when it paid off and a friend could use the ones from our Curious George cake (because it was discontinued). Hoarding crap finally paid off.
Kristin said she didn't like Cake. What? I will say that I enjoy ice cream a lot more - most of the time. That was before I met this Go Diego Go Birthday Cake from Publix. It was heavenly (or maybe from hell). I am assuming our party guests had cake so I am guessing that I ate about 3/4 of this cake all by myself. I didn't do it all in one sitting, but spread out over 2-3 days. This was back in January so it is no wonder that I needed to join The Biggest Loser contest at the gym in the Spring. I froze a big chunk of this cake and found it in the back of my freezer last month. I thought I could let the kids eat it after dinner, but I ended up eating it all by myself before it even came to room temperature. I always have to freeze cake because
1. I can save me from myself
2. I can't stand that big floppy box on my counter with all the dried icing crumbs
3. When my hubby comes home and says "where is all that cake?!" I can say "Oh, I froze it..." It won't hurt him to assume I froze a lot more of it than I actually did.
This one was chocolate cake with the white icing. You know the pure Crisco and sugar icing? You might know it better as "Buttercream". That sounds nicer. Whenever I make it myself I can hardly bring myself to eat it. When it comes from Publix it becomes my main course. This is Baby Girl and her smash cake. Both cakes had a polka dot theme. My Aunt got them at a nice bakery for me and they were also chocolate. Funny, I don't remember standing over it and eating it for days. I must have done it in only one day and didn't even have to freeze anything. I hope I didn't have a icing-induced-blackout.
Just a month and a half before out next Indiana Jones cake for the Big Guy. Wish me luck.
