My youngest turned 1 on Friday. She also took her first steps the week of Christmas. It makes me feel old knowing she is growing up. Things are getting easier though, she is starting to eat many of the same things we eat. I won’t have to cook separate ‘mushy’ food for her anymore. I will have to cut back on the spice though, I tend to make things too hot for children. But, back to the point of this, cake! I made the youngest a homemade birthday cake and icing. It was insanely delicious, and used only simple ingredients, so it was perfect. The tradeoff was that it was tons of work, and made a huge mess. The cake uses Baker’s semi-sweet chocolate, and the icing is mostly sugar and butter, um, 5 cups of sugar. I can’t think of anything better, honestly. We used white icing and covered it in pink sprinkles, because that is what you do when you have girls. My house is vomiting pink. Anyway, just thought I would share this delicious recipe with you guys, in case anyone needs a special cake recipe.
We are staying in this year for NYE. Things have been so busy and hectic over the holidays, it feels nice to stay home and do nothing except raise babies. Maybe next year will be more exciting. Happy New Year’s Eve Ya’ll!
