For my one-hundreth blog... I decided to dedicate this blog to my true loves! Of course there's Jim, then there's Daimien, at a close third... there is my Angels... Audrie and AJ, but lastly my true love of baking!
Today it was just us girls... me and Audrie! What to do.... what to do?...
After making breakfast... we painted our nails... gotta love the color Audrie picked! Next on the list , after the nails dried, was kitchen time!
Jim just celebrated his 55th birthday... and for some reason, his wife, (oh yeah ... that would be me...) did'nt make him a birthday cake! Well I say better late than never, plus it will be a big surprise!
When I married this awesome man... I quickly learned that I really needed to learn how to bake. As my mother in law was an amazing baker. So as to earn brownie points with MIL and win the love of my life's heart... I asked her to teach me to bake!
It was Jim's birthday that month and she was to teach me how to make his favorite cake... coconut cake, you know the kind with the white mountain frosting.... We spent the whole day in the kitchen and I learned so much about baking! I was hooked!
So on Jim's birthday I was to surprise him with my baked creation.... It was so sad.... The layers were sliding off of each other... the layers were warped and uneven.. I called my MIL and she said we can fix this! A couple of wooden skewers, a little more
coconut and voila! Happy Birthday Jim!
So.... Audrie and I made Jim a belated birthday cake.... ! We had an amazing day in the kitchen and she found her favorite Icing in the world! No wooden skewers needed for this cake!
Happy birthday my love!!!!!!
