  • Project: day 126: cooking it up/ a special way to celebrate a birthday: birthday pancakes with sprinkles, candles, and “frosting”
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1
  • Would I do it again? yes, and probably will for every birthday! It was another great way to start a birthday morning!
  • What I would do differently: nothing! I might try doing it with the cake batter as per the original source, but I thought pancakes would be a better way to start the day versus cake! Hey, the sprinkles were already way different than what we would typically have for breakfast!
  • Items used: pancakes, sprinkles, candles, and “frosting” (half and half and powdered sugar), and the adorable idea from: http://www.tasteandtellblog.com/2011/09/birthday-cake-pancakes/

Until ipinterest tomorrow!

Project: day 93: baking away/ Black Magic Cake, amazingly moist chocolate cake, so good!
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 3 (thank goodness my most amazing husband was able to help me frost the cake, because mine would have looked horrible!)
• Would I do it again? oh yes. This was the perfect home-made chocolate cake!
• What I would do differently: double the frosting recipe. We definitely needed more for the top!
