Today is my sweet hubby's birthday. The whole family usually celebrates his birthday on Super Bowl Sunday, (that could be another lengthy post) but with the Super Bowl being later this year we had a little celebration tonight. Due to some bad colds, only 2 of the grandkids came, but as you can see, they had fun. This is Kobi and Cade....(Not sure I want to know what is in Cades mouth)
" What kind of cake do you want?" I asked.
"The one with the tan interior" he said.
Now I ask you, is that a typical man answer or what. So I said " Would that be spice, apple, carrot cake or what?" He said "I don't know, just a tan interior with that creamy white frosting" Well that helped as I knew he meant Cream Cheese Frosting. It just happens I make all three of those with that "Creamy White Frosting."
So I guessed and made Spice Cake
Now I ask you...Is that a tan interior or what?
This is the spice cake recipe I use. It is a Paula Deen recipe that I think she serves for brunch with out the frosting. I will include my frosting recipe too.
