Happy Birthday, Dot!
All of the ingredients came together nicely. I am embarrassed to show that my Rachel Ray trash bowl is my only mixing bowl. Don't laugh. I guess now I won't walk around Bed, Bath and Beyond aimlessly. I actually have a purpose - buy mixing bowls, asap!
Everything was going smoothly. I was beginning to think, this is pretty easy. That's when I started the icing. Then stopped the icing.
Finn was tired of helping. Thanks, a lot, Finnster.
After a few more minutes, the knife was inserted, came out clean, and it was time to ice the cake.
All in all, it was a good experience. Not too hard or time consuming and fun to be the one making the cake. I think everyone enjoyed. It was a little spongy but still pretty tasty for the first try.
And this is what I was left with. William seemed to be aggravated with the dirty dishes piling up, and said, "You sure are making a mess."
I, matter of factly, replied, "That's part of baking."
"How do you know?" He asked.
We both doubled over in laughter.
I didn't know. But now I do, and I think I'll go for round two.
