Oh dear!.... Look what happened to my cake!....
Oh dear!... Look what happened to my cake!....
For some reason I have not been having much luck in the creative arts department of late. First I made a mess out of the alligator I was going to give my hubby for Valentine's Day. Luckily though, I just finished making another Valentine's Day card for him, and I must say, it turned out rather well. He is going to be so surprised! I can't wait to give it to him. I wonder if he's finished making mine yet?
Recently I decided it might be fun to bake a Valentine's Day cake for my family so I got out all of my baking supplies and went to work. I made a cherry chip cake, poked holes in it, and drizzled cherry Jell-O inside. So far so good right? Well, that's when I discovered I didn't have enough frosting to finish the cake. I decided to use cookie decorating icing for the border instead of running out to the store. Big mistake! As you can see the frosting melted down the sides of the cake and would not hold a shape when I used my 'Fun Gun' decorating kit. I also messed up the writing on the top of the cake so my hubby came to the rescue and tried to doctor it up for me. By this time I was ready to toss the whole thing in the garbage but my hubby added the cinnamon hearts and tried to convince me that it had all turned out beautifully. Ha!
I have been blessed with the best family in the whole world because they all told me how nice it looked even though I knew the truth LOL
I have to admit, that even though it was decorated rather silly, it did taste good.
Charli seemed to like it. She loves frosting and even came back for seconds minus the cinnamon hearts of course :>)
I hope all of you are having a fun week getting ready for Saint Valentine's Day ♥
With warmest regards, Carol
