Not to be outdone by a trip to Kansas and a Red Velvet cake, Kate indulged my need to bake another birthday cake the Friday following our return. So on 11/10, during our gaming session, we feasted Kate to celebrate her 37th revolution around the sun.
Gaming and cake! What could be better?
Fire? You're right! Fire!
I didn't have enough candles to put all over the top, but I thought drawing 37 with candles was a nice compromise. The heat did start to melt the icing...so not having 37 candles was probably for the best.
Kate waits for the photography to stop so the conflagration can be extinguished.
Mmm mmmm! Old fashioned chocolate cake with chocolate icing, from Cook's Illustrated. Three hours of work. Totally worth it.
Bet you're hungry now!
