September 2nd is a super important date because it is the birthday of my favorite person- my husband! I love getting to celebrate him and all he is accomplishing! I have always been proud of him, but recently he started school again studying computer information science and has been working really hard at O’Reilly’s. He had to work til 4 on his birthday, but he had mentioned to me how nice it would be to have a cake… Meaning- you should bake me a cake… lol!
Now, I am no baker or cook, so this would be no easy feat! But I really did want to make him smile and somewhat surprise him with a really great cake. But what kind of cake??!! So funny… we’ve been married for four years and dating over 5 and I have no idea what kind of cake my hubby likes…even called his mom to ask for suggestions.
Also, I got this cute board from Walmart and I love it!
I ended up going with a chocolate cake with whipped butter creme frosting, and grabbing sprinkles, cuz sprinkles make everything better! The last time I baked a cake was probably 4 years ago and it didn’t turn out so great. The main reason I haven’t been the best at cooking is that I sometimes don’t pay enough attention to the ingredients and/or how long to bake whatever it is. Well, this time was gonna be different… I was determined to bake a great cake!!!
Dave worked all day, so we planned to go to dinner and then eat our cake and ice cream once home! We went to a really great restaurant, but didn’t get the best service and our food had to be re-cooked since it was overlooked and cold- BUT GOOD NEWS- we got 2 beers, 2 wines, 2 apps, and 2 meals for $12. We’ll take it!
