Zia insisted we needed to “bake a HUGE cake” today.  So we did–but not exactly a huge one. We had just about enough flour, sugar, eggs, and confectioner’s sugar for half a cake, so we made a one-layer vanilla cake.  It was plenty–with leftovers to freeze until Caleb comes home. (Not that you’re saving any of those fancy Disney world treats for us, of course…but I guess we’ll live. 😉

    Caleb all week: “Zia who? Cash? Mamma who? Dad who?” Yet we’ll still save him some I guess. It was darn skippy good too! /:O)

    It did great! “Convect” is nice but cooks faster than I’m used to, so I just use regular “bake” setting.

    My daughter frequently wants to make cake thinking it’s a good birthday celebration or just because it’s Wednesday.

    I love Cash’s face on the third photo. It looks like he’s saying,” stop taking pictures and lets dive in already” 😉

    Yep–that’s about right. 😉 He did actually take a bite in that first photo.
