Birthday Cake

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.)

3: Mixmixmixmixmix!

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!

  1. Super cute!! Looks like he was a great help. :) Tomorrow, Anana can come with me to help clean my Mom's house (ooOooh fun!) and eventually I *will* get the Magic Kingdom and Busch Gardens photos edited and posted.

    Happy Birthday to your fiance!
