I love CAKE, it is my favorite dessert and believe me I have eaten (and enjoyed) plenty of cake in my lifetime…since it is my birthday, I thought this would be a great post to talk about cake and share some pictures of cakes made by a very close and dear friend of mine.
I recently had the distinct pleasure of being invited to attend a birthday celebration for a very special one year old girl.
I never go to an event like this empty handed and offered to do some baking. I got an enthusiastic reply that my baking would be greatly appreciated. I decided to bake some gourmet chocolate and vanilla cupcakes and make a pan of Rice Krispie squares. When I advised what I was bringing I got a squeal of excitement over the Rice Krispie squares and I actually laughed out loud thinking to myself really?? You are more excited about a non-bake easy to make treat over a delicious “made from scratch” gourmet cupcake.
The picture above was the first batch of test cupcakes – pardon the crumbs, these were the only three that made it out alive to the picture taking stage…my volunteer taste testers gave the thumbs up.
