Birthday Cake and Flowers

Posted on | January 30, 2009 | 6 Comments

greg's birthday cake

This afternoon I made a cake for my boyfriend’s birthday. The cake turned out perfectly. Usually I have a hard time with the buttercream frosting. The frosting sometimes isn’t thick enough and slides off the cake. Not this time! I had a perfectly baked even cakes and a nice stiff chocolaty frosting. I can’t wait to try it. I bought a few flowers at the grocery store to entertain myself while the cake baked. To view more photos just visit my flickr photostream.

p.s. I will do my weekly round up of posts later tonight.

    Oh man Katy! I'm been commenting on your blog all the time for over a week or so, and never knew it wasn't letting me comment. Something's up with my Firefox, it works with Safari. So, I'm sorry you haven't been getting my comments, I feel so sad. Hopefully it works from now on…

    btw, gorgeous birthday cake, the layers look delicious!
