Tomorrow is Chad’s birthday. I should know better than to ask him what kind of cake he wants. At first, he said he wanted a Red Velvet Cake. Great! I can make that and I even like it, even though I don’t like chocolate. I suppose he began to think about having to share his cake and he called me and said Mom, I’ve found a cake recipe at Gourmet.com that I want instead.
Oh, yes, it’s Devil’s Food with Chocolate Orange Buttercream Icing. Think he would notice if I used a cake mix and icing out of a can?
Nope, I’ll do as instructed and make the cake from scratch. Chad has a final tomorrow at 11:00 and then he works til 9 so we’ll celebrate his birthday either Thursday or Saturday . . he hasn’t decided yet when he’ll have a few minutes to spend with us.
