His New Favorite

After a nice camping weekend where the weather was less than stellar (says the spoiled California beach camper), my mom and dad had us over for a BBQ and cake for Hubby's birthday.

We love to extend birthday celebrations into days, weekends, and often a week! Hey, why not right?

My mom had asked Hubby at the campground his favorite dessert treat.

"Cupcakes" was his answer. Yellow cake with chocolate frosting.

But during that time, all the kids that were in earshot decided to all chime in on their faves. Chocolate/chocolate, white cake white frosting, carrot cake, donuts, I think even someone threw out pie...there was no discerning who said what.

So at the party my mom is telling me something about not using egg yolks in white cake recipes.

Me--?? Okay, but who's the white cake for?

Mom--Didn't Hubby say his fave was white cake, white frosting?

My Brother--No that's my favorite.

Mom--Oops.

He also said cupcakes, but it's the thought that counts! Thanks Yaya!

It was also my brother and sister-in-law's 10th anniversary so it was all good!

My sweet Hubby's comment at the end of the night? "White cake, white frosting is my new favorite!"

He's such a keeper!

    Hahahahahaha! The labels on your picture are totally the icing on the cake (yes, it's a bad pun, but I haven't had enough coffee yet this morning). It was very creative of you to stick matches in the cake.

    Now the matches are just sad. We always have plenty of candles. I always buy a new pack for the kids' cakes, so we have tons. Our problem is we have nothing to light them with!!! Trade you some candles for matches!

    It's all about the week long or month long celebrations, especially when I'm the one being celebrated! *wink. What a nice guy, hope you all had a blast!

  22. Shannon said...
