Did I tell you I made a cake? No? Well I did. From scratch. For Rob's birthday. (I'm really pulling out all the stops to try to convince him to propose, but I don't know if I've quite won him over yet.) Anyways, I used Ina's Strawberry Country Cake recipe and it was pretty good, but I overcooked the cakes a bit, which is funny, because I took them out 5 minutes early. Hmph. Oh well, at least it looked pretty.
[The recipe says to use one cake and cut it in half, but what fun is that? I used two.]
[The birthday boy making Peter cry. Typical, but this picture makes me laugh.]
[And if you absolutely hate how the cake turns out, I recommend having another glass of wine. You just might change your mind.]
