07 Nov Party Hardy!
I must say I’m really proud of how the cake turned out. I kept asking Camilla what she wanted on her cake. At first she wanted Elmo, like her friend Maggie, but I doubted my ability to pull that off. So I asked her if she had any other ideas and she said, “Bunny!” Actually, “Nunny!” She can say the b-sound now, so I can’t figure out why she says “nunny” instead of “bunny” but whatever. Her pediatrician told me, “Give her a break, she’s only two!” So, I planned to make the famous cake from my Anne of Green Gables cookbook. My mom and I have been making this cake for twenty years, but for some reason both of us had trouble with it this year. I ended up making four layers instead of two because each layer came out of the oven looking beautiful but immediately collapsed to about half it’s original size. I was very frustrated with this whole process. Then, my frosting kept sliding down the sides of the cake, no matter how thick I made it. Since I had so much trouble with the baking and frosting, I thought making the bunnies would be a nightmare. But it took all of fifteen minutes and I was thrilled with the final result! As I’ve said before, what’s the use of having a blog if you can’t brag a little bit?
Everyone loved playing with Camilla’s kitchen!
Maggie and her mommy, Peg.
Soooo many presents!
