Home Is Where My Story Begins

Boxed Cake

It was my daughter’s 8th birthday last week and yesterday we hosted a family party for her.  I asked her what kind of dessert she wanted and here was her wish:
The birthday cake that you buy in a box that has sprinkles.
Chocolate frosting.
Then, that Oreo frosting that you squeeze out.
Oh, and an Oreo on top.
Well, it wouldn’t have my first choice.  So, we went to the store and bought a bunch of prepackaged cake stuff and got to work.  I think it was the fastest dessert I’ve ever made, but the kids (and their dads) loved it.  As a matter of fact, at one point I yelled, “Hold on, people!  You don’t fight like this over my home made desserts.  There’s more frosting in that Oreo tube.”
Who knew that I boxed cake and a tube of frosting would get everyone so excited!
Happy birthday to my little munchkin!
