Cole’s Birthday Cake
The guests at Cole’s birthday party who asked me if I made his fabulous birthday cake are now my best friends. Although I did not make the birthday cake, a few special people recognized me as a potential future birthday cake maker. This is one compelling reason to grow your friendships past the ones who know that you add buttercream to your grocery list. I don’t like those friends nearly as much anymore.
Cole’s FABULOUS birthday cake was made by his Uncle Richard. Aunt Susan played her supporting role beautifully by lighting the birthday candles and cutting the cake to perfection.
Richard’s Walnut birthday cake included 56 eggs and 8 pounds of butter. What I want to know is how in the world did Richard keep count while he was adding the eggs! Cole and I had a hard time keeping track of the 6 eggs we added to his tart.
I would share the birthday cake recipe, but Richard created the cake from scratch, he scratched his head, and made up the recipe.
Cole had his cake and ate it, too…What a great way to start his 14th year.
