Labor of Love

On March 23rd Dana celebrated her 31st birthday.  I wanted to do something special for her and decided on making her a cake.  It was Dana’s job to pick out the type of cake she wanted and the icing flavor.  She wanted a double-layer, red velvet, cake with cream cheese icing. 
There was a time in my life where I boasted about my cooking skills.  I would compete in contests and usually win.  I was even bold enough to cook for girls when I dated them so that they knew I was a winner.  Well I am saddened to say that my cooking skills have faded away over the past ten years of marriage because I don’t do any of the cooking.  (I know I know I should probably cook more but you are missing the point.)
I baked the cake in two round pans, but noticed that the bottom of each was a little bit “overdone.”  I was not going to let this stop me.  I used to watch a show called Ace of Cakes  where they would cut the bottom or top off of a cake for decorative purposes.  Well I attempted to do the same thing to salvage Project Birthday Cake.  Well this did not go so well.  I ended up using the icing as a type of cake putty to stick the two cakes together.  I wanted to show my creative side, but the cake ended up looking like an igloo.  Dana still enjoyed it and that is all that counts.
Oh the things we do when we are in love.
