The girls and I decided to make Matt a birthday cake rather than buy one. You know, a gift from the heart. So we put a white cake in the oven, made frosting (in multiple colors) and loaded my decorating gun in anticipation of doing a really cool cake. We were so excited.
Idiot me thought I could let the cake cool for a bit then flip it out of the pan to cool it the rest of the way. I flipped it too soon and this is what it looked like.
No biggie, right? I'll try to piece it back together with frosting and no one will be the wiser. Ummm not. So finally I decided to cut up the cake into pieces (what few parts needed cutting), add some strawberries and call it a birthday strawberry shortcake. We stuck candles in it and surprised Matt with what he says is definetely the most interesting "birthday goulash" he has ever seen.
I think next year we will go back to buying a cake.
