Hello Kitty Cake

What a busy week it’s been!  We had our second birthday(s) celebration at my in-law’s yesterday….there was 17 of us!!!!  I made a double batch of my Broccoli & Asiago Cheese soup, and 3 little quiches to take…. as well as a cake that I will post later this week.  The cake alone will take 3 posts for all the steps but it was a fun experiment! And I have a back log of about 10 posts I need to actually type!!!

With last week being Dillon’s (my now 26 year old son, if anyone isn’t aware of it) birthday…. and being the resident smart ass lol… I thought I would make him a joke birthday cake.  I honestly do not remember where it started…. but for years at every birthday, Christmas and occasions such as those, Dillon receives at least one Hello Kitty gift.  One year I made him a Hello Kitty first aid kit, it could be something little like a cookie cutter, ice cube tray, whatever but always something Hello Kitty. 

When I baked the cakes for the birthday cake for Sunday, I made one extra round layer to use for Dillon’s birthday cake. I used the pieces I cut off the layers to make them sit even and made him this Hello Kitty cake lol.  When he got home from work that day I told him to check in the fridge at the awesome birthday cake I made for him.  He took one look and just burst out laughing.  Thankfully he is used to his mom’s strange sense of humour!

Chris’ Birthday Cake(s)

This past weekend was Chris’ birthday.  Happy Birthday Chris!  The very first cake I ever made for Chris was a Maraschino Cherry Chocolate cake, that he loved, it’s not the same as this one because the cherries are baked inside of that one but it is still delicious and I will have to make it again one day to post!

As usual, for his birthday I made him his favourite cake! It is a faux Black Forest Cake.  I also made another version of it to take to his family birthday get together. I called this one a White Forest Cake because I made it with a white cake instead of the chocolate.  It too received good reviews!  When I finished icing and decorating the cake for Chris, I texted him a picture because he was in the garage.  I got back “Holy #*(^%(&, that is freaking awesome” lol!  Yes, it is his favourite!!!
