Fiance's birthday is tomorrow! And he's working 5pm-1am tonight, so I thought I'd get his birthday cake made, so it would be waiting for him when he got home! Clyde was a big help. We made a step-by-step:
|1: Put the cake mix in a bowl and grab a spoon.|
|2: Add the oil, water, and eggs. (Rinse egg off your fingers,|
if you're a messy egg-breaker like me.)
|4: Remove some of the batter into another bowl.|
Add food coloring.
|5: Mixmixmix! (Not pictured: Repeat with another bowl and another color.)|
|6: Pour batters in layers into your greased pan.|
(By the way, you should have greased a pan before now.)
|7: Smoosh the layers outward a little (they should, in theory,|
spread more while they bake... I don't know, I've never done this before).
|8: Put the cake in the oven (which, by the way, should have been preheated|
to 350F before now) and wash the dishes!
|9: Put the camera away and forget to bring it out while you pull the cake out,|
let it cool, and frost it (and add sprinkles!).
Step 10: Wait for Fiance to come home and enjoy his cake!
