The Cake is ON!!!! (Part Two)

A few days ago, I posted about Part One of our cake adventures. While our cake was baking, I ventured into making my first ever homemade frosting. NO.....I didn't do it to be all June Cleaverish....we simply didn't have any frosting on hand, and live at least 8 miles from the nearest store. With gas prices the way they are....I wasn't making a trip for something as silly as frosting, so I reached WAY back in my brain and remembered a cake recipe one of my friends found on a blog last year, and loved. As I recalled everyone raved about the frosting. The recipe can be found here. Now remember....I didn't make that cake, just the frosting.

Being that I am a FREAK of nature I didn't have any white flour on hand, so between the wheat flour and the dark Vanilla the frosting turned out a nigh Carmel color. Very pretty....and tasty too.

I did all the frosting, yet Sugar was in charge. That little honey stood on a chair next to me and directed my every move. I understood most of what she said between frosting encrusted lip smacking. (not sure how I didn't get a photo of that????)

I was under strict orders to write Happy Birthday in ORANGE. She giggled with delight as I slowly spelled out each word. "It needs Red flowers, and blue dots, Mama! Hurry...but Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee careful!" I did the best I could, but cake decorator......I am NOT! Luckily....she is easily impressed. (I have no idea what flickr did to this photo to make it so awful, but I'm too tired to upload it again.)

After thoughtfully choosing light blue candles to match the dark blue dots, Sugar Bear set to carefully placing them atop the cake.

She happily declared, "three candles is JUST RIGHT!"

After a quick little pose with our fabulous cake, and a few reminders to keep fingers out of the frosting on the cake......

We were set to light the candles. That is always one of my favorite parts. Candles flickering above a tasty cake is just so inviting, don't you think?

"Happy Birthday to you...........
Happy Birthday to you..........
Happy Birthhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhdayyyyyyyyyyy dear...........WHO???????
Happy Birthday to YOU!!!!!!"

OH wait....where are those pictures....I know I've seen them somewhere. I'm sorry....I simply don't know what happened. Stay tuned! wink wink......
