My birthday cake

Each year for my birthday Michael bakes me a cake and sometimes even attempts to decorate it. This year he make me Paula Deen's Caramel Cake - delicious! Here's how that went:

In Michael's defense the icing sets really quickly. First he tried icing it with a spatula:

After he grew frustrated with that method he just moved onto spackeling it on with his fingers:

And here's the finished product:

The cake may have looked rough but the taste was amazing! Topped off with a scoop of Blue Bell vanilla icecream and it was pure heaven. Thanks babe!

That looks delicious!

I'm impressed he pulled off a layer cake.

My husband baked brownies from scratch for our 1-month wedding anniversary (his idea, not mine).

The brownies tasted good, but, the frosting was an issue for him as well. He made a vanilla icing and tried to write Happy Anniversary. It looked something like this:


There's something about bad icing jobs that make the baked goods more memorable than perfect icing jobs ever could.
