Let Tham Eat Cake





Cake, cake and cake....I've made a few this week. Seleia (I love this kid) didn't want a store bought cake. "Yours taste way better, mom!" How do I say no to that? This is the girl who finally got the hang of reading when I gave her a stack of cookbooks. So, for our family celebration dinner (nachos)on her actual birthday, she requested an egg nog cake with nutmeg whipped cream frosting. For her party, she chose lemon cake with whipped cream frosting, chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting, and pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting. All were decorated with the little star candies and candles picked out special for her by her sister Elora. (My kitchen reached a crazy level of disorder with pumpkins and lemons and the like littering the place. Batter drippings. Butter wrappers. Egg shells.  I'm a very messy cook, but I clean it up nicely.) And the best part? She was so beyond grateful. (Come to think of it, her cake choices made quite a few people happy.) She is already planning her cakes for next year. By then, I hope, I can just direct while she does the baking! She is getting quite good in the kitchen, so we'll see! And then she can do the cleanup...
