More cake - warts and all

I whipped up another cake yesterday afternoon for Master 8's birthday.... since almost all the muffins went to school with him! The idea of having a birthday without a party has been a difficult concept for him to grasp, so as a compromise he had a friend over for a sleepover for the first time. As is usual in our household the Birthday boy/girl gets to have their choice for dinner which meant nacho's..... he chooses the same thing every year! Overall... he had a great day and was one very spoilt boy.... which is what birthday's are all about... isn't it??

I kept the cake fairly simple.... a plain Coconut cake and once again used my piping bag to pretty it up:
While it may look pretty.... I can't say it's a recipe I'll use again (which is why i'm not giving it to you). I guess you'd say it was a bit tough and the kids weren't all that impressed so they traded their pieces for the last couple of muffins.... the cream cheese icing on the other hand is always a winner.

So there you have it..... not everything I make I is a success! lol

Until next time........
