I know I promised more puggie goodness or today, but I need to show you this awesome cake instead. Puggies will follow soon!
Our daughter is a very creative young woman. She is currently a bakery department manager in a grocery store in the San Diego area. Her birthday is coming up on Sunday, May 16th. She will be 24. She posted the following photos on her facebook page.
Dear Daughter told me that she did not trust anyone else to make a cake for her. She made this awesome mushroom cake for herself. :o) The cake is white cake with a layer of chocolate frosting, strawberries and bananas. It is covered in butter cream frosting and then painted with an airbrush. I wish we were in San Diego to have a piece of this cake!!
Daughter has had an affection for mushrooms for quite some time. I have bought many mushroom items for her over the years. However, she will not eat them. I tried to trick her when she was young, and I succeeded for sometime. I used to make a yummy gravy out of cream of mushroom soup and put it over hamburger patties. She would gobble this up and really seemed to like it. She did ask about the little brown specks in the gravy but I would just tell her they were the little bits of meat and caramelized goodness from the bottom of the pan. This worked until I forgot to hide the empty can of soup in the garbage quickly enough. No amount of cajoling would get her to eat this again.
I love you very much, honey!! I would not trade a minute of my life with you for anything. You are brave and adventurous, funny and kind, thoughtful and sweet, beautiful and amazing. Happy Birthday!!
