Now that we have a couple of teenagers in the house, well....cake goes really fast! I bake it, cool it and ice it. I turn around to grab a couple of dessert plates when I feel a cool breeze on my back. I whip around just in time to come face to face with a cake plate full of crumbs! It happens every time.....
So, this is why we were standing at the cake mixes in this great debate.
I stuck my hand out and lightly touched a box of german chocolate cake mix. He looked at it and mentioned for the first time in nearly 24 years together that it was his favorite cake.
I looked at him and said, "No, it isn't. You like chocolate cake with white icing. Your mother told me that before our wedding. That's why your groom's cake was chocolate with white icing. MY favorite cake is german chocolate!"
His reply: "Well, I like chocolate cake with white icing....a lot."
As I dropped the cake mix and icing in the basket, I was thinking to myself how this cake would be safe with all that sticky, brown, coconut icing....Ha Ha ha ha ahaah aha!
It was really good! And I was right, it was safe.....for a little while. *sigh*
