Rob’s Birthday

It is impossible to make a cake for my husband without him seeing the process.  I tried to figure out a way he wouldn’t see his cake until it was complete but it just didn’t work. 

Here’s Rob’s TWO cakes!  Yes, he rates 2 birthday cakes.  Rob is diabetic so the chocolate cake is sugar-free.  It’s chocolate cake with chocolate whipped cream icing.  The grim reaper on the top is fondant – not sugar-free but he wasn’t going to eat that anyway. 

Rob’s second cake was a sugar loaded cake for our friends to enjoy.  It’s a pumpkin gingerbread cake with cream cheese buttercream.  The stem is a hunk of cake covered in the same buttercream. 

This was a new recipe that required fresh grated ginger.  I’ve made pumpkin bread with ginger before but not fresh ginger.  It really makes a big difference.  This was extremely good.

Keepin’ it sweet!
