I made my darling L a pink, sparkly birthday cake. I used the family Tomato Soup Cake recipe... I tried my MILs edits this time and I wasn't as happy with the texture of the cake... but it turned out fine. The real disaster was the cream cheese icing. I don't know what I did wrong this time... but the cream cheese was lumpy and it wouldn't get thick... I tried to frost the cake with it... and ended in tears... my husband and Betty Crocker saved the day with a trip to the store to buy some premade cream cheese frosting...not as good as homemade, but far better than tears.
Here is the Birthday Girl in action!
Happy Birthday to you! Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday dear L... Happy birthday to you!
Make a Wish!
Lick the candle clean. And enjoy a birthday cupcake.
