Birthday Cake #2

Yep, that's right...this is birthday cake #2.  The lovely cake pictured in the previous post was a big suprise to bite into.  It seems the pastry chefs at my house had forgotten a key ingredient, and although it was a beautiful creation, it wasn't the tastiest!  They left the water out of the cake.  (It was the first cake Keith had ever made.  I think Landry had made a cake before one time with his Mommy Gran when she was visiting.)

I got a big surprise this morning.  Would you believe that those sweet men in my house stayed up until midnight and made me a new cake!  I was so tired after the ladies retreat I'd been to and after the celebrating that we did, so I went to bed early.  When I woke up today Keith said, "I've got something to show you, wait right here." And he came back with this beautiful 2nd cake!  He was so annoyed that it hadn't turned out well and he was determined to get it right, so they stayed up late and took a do-over.

It was yummy, and you can see, there's not a lot of it left.  I'm so blessed to be the benificiary of their thoughtfulness X 2!

Those boys are amazing! You're one lucky girl!
At least our red velvet cake - as ugly as it was - had all the ingredients! ;^)
I hope you had a happy birthday week!
