Happy 34th Birthday to my wonderful husband! Today is Eric’s birthday, but we had to celebrate last night since I leave for Minneapolis this afternoon for Zumba training tomorrow morning. I spent all afternoon working on this masterpiece:
This frosting was like BUTTAH. Well, thats probably b/c it WAS mainly, all, BUTTER. Oh well! It was worth it! The
dinner request by the birthday boy was steak and salad – and what goes better with steak and salad than popovers!? So that was my input. The popovers. They popped this time, but got a little too toasted on the top. I dunno.
Dylan was a little upset that there were NO presents for him. He had suggested we get Daddy a little tractor for them to “play with together” as his present to Eric. But I didn’t follow through on that one.
My baking assistant, proud of his work. And the little sister who spent the afternoon wrapped around my legs screaming.
I don’t know HOW he managed to blow all those out!? He’s SO old! Dylan offered up his expertise. If you’ll recall, he showed off his skills at his own party and everyone got a little taste of his saliva on their cake!
Beauty shot of a slice. The recipe can be found here. This was some seriously good frosting. Especially if you are a coffee lover. I think I’m really only interested in eating the frosting later today and that’s so not like me! Normally, I scrape the frosting off my cake! So, that must tell you how good the frosting is, am I right?
Well, that’s all I have for you on the birthday excitement. Happy Birthday again to my hubby! You are truly the best gift I have ever been given and I hope you feel the same way about us! Especially since your gifts were nothing to write home about!
That’s all from me for today! I’ll be back on Monday with a full report on the Zumba training!
