Cake Off

When baking sweets for the other:

Gerry- Bakes with his heart in it; the bigger the better and the most elaborate the name the better.
Me- Bakes while trying not to overcook it so it is moist verses the chewing and swallowing AT LEAST 10 times for one small bite to get down without choking! I know you know what I am talking about. :)  When I bake I am seriously focused on display and the prettiness of it all!  I LOVE baking.

* I say- "Aww, it is so pretty!"  According to my husband "IT"S NOT PRETTY, IT LOOKS GOOD!"  Man lingo...haha.

* You hungry? I will make you something to eat.  According to my husband- "You can tell how much someone loves you by the way they make your food"-I think sometimes he may wonder how much I actually love him.....haha!

We started doing this cake off thing in a good nature.  My husband started it after I made him a awesome cake and he said "Yeah, wait until your birthday and see the bomb cake I am going to make you!"  It was history after that.   For about 3 years it went strong with only homemade cakes.  Over the last few years it has been a spotting homemade and store bought kind of thing.

Okay, have a seat and check out some of these super thoughtful desserts and other bday giving.

Poor photo quality only because the original was a little blurry, but it was delicious.

This was by far the most thoughtful and creative cake my husband has made to date.   He smashed up a whole box of banana twins and mixed it with the frosting.   He added it all together on a strawberry cake and you can see how awesome the decorations is.   This one has been the best cake of his and mine was the homemade Italian Cream Cake I made for him.....so he has had the win for years.  SHHH!  Don't tell him that, I will never hear the end of it. 

Turtle Cheesecake from Tripps.

2009- We made brownie sundaes at home.
2010-  He had me some cannolis made at the bakery.
2011- Grabbed some blizzards at DQ! 

They all made me breakfast in bed, we went and had chair massages at the mall and my hubby and I broke in my SPOILED ROTTEN BIRTHDAY GOBLET.  They really do spoil me. 


Oh my goodness....I love this photo.   This will last me AT LEAST until the end of the week.  Chocolate always makes me feel better.  The Olive Garden Moscato is my favorite wine to drink, but we get it for at least 8 bucks cheaper at the grocery store.   My husband got me that beautiful rose you see and I loved it all.   My day actually started off great.   You are going to laugh at me, but I am completely addicted to the Bingo Blitz game and I actually win here and there, but today I won SO MANY 1, 2, 3rd spots plus others and it made me so excited and started my day out right.  My son said "Your computer must know it is your birthday today mama!"  Thanks as always ya'll!

How was your last birthday?
