Today I am sharing the recipes for the cakes I used, but the main key is the design (although the cakes were also super delicious and stayed that way for a week). I found this really fun to make. It was easier than doing fancy frosting designs.
For the Chiplet’s birthday, there was no shortage of treats.
One of the best parts is that he could have all of the treats. The only thing he couldn’t eat was the popcorn just because he isn’t big enough yet for that, but everything else was fine.
While preparing for the Chiplet’s birthday, I did lots of decorating and need to share two major takeaways.
You might notice there haven’t been too many desserts lately. I’ve either been making the same old stuff, or having not great luck with new recipes. We’ve also been eating fewer desserts so I haven’t needed to make as many because they last longer. (We have also been buying tons of Oreos since it is an easy small treat post-dinner for the kids).
But here we are with a coconut cake.
Here I am, not at home yet when I’m writing this, but getting excited to do cooking when I go back. I am probably remaking some recipes (like my lasagna!) but also some new ones. The risks of making new recipes are always high. Sometimes the recipes are just okay but sometimes they can turn out almost awful. Today I am sharing mostly fails…
