Today, I was feeling festive.
I learned how to use the self-timer on my camera.
I am a big girl now. And big girls have to make the birthday meal.
Here is the menu that the birthday boy requested:
Hash Brown Potatoes
Snowflake Cake is a new adventure:
Only the best ingredients for the birthday boy. This goes beyond vanilla extract - waaaay beyond.
Since the cake itself is chocolate, and naughty chocolate crumbs ruin the look of the cake,
Two layers of frosting is required. Yum.
Doing the snowflakes right is a test of character. Curse words may be heard.
But the final product is worth it.
And the birthday boy was thrilled.
