birthday cake update...

I made the cake
no one was harmed.
I did forget to buy candy for the cookie cakes.
DJ only cried a little...
but we improvised...


I made the cookie cakes with this recipe [except we used 2 9 inch pans and had to bake it for 28 minutes] - it was super yummy, but if I were to do it again, I would use a different recipe because these were very cakey rather than like big cookies... either way, they sure were good! Also, DJ [the expert on everything, juuust kidding love you honey] said that he would have frozen the cakes before putting the ice cream on to avoid any melt [see picture 2]. Nonetheless, the cake was a success and very yummy!

Like I said earlier, I forgot to buy the candy (M&Ms, Butterfinger, and Reeses Cups) but my mother-in-law came to the rescue with her "top of the cabinet hidden candy reserve" - we made one layer with a chocolate chip cookie cake, one with heath bar bits and crunch bars, and one with reeses peanut butter cups. I also forgot [I was having a flakey day, don't judge me] to get bacon - so we melted chocolate and heated up bacon bits and mixed them together [it was damn good, weird- I know].

so here's what we ended up making...
the cake turned out lovely...

until it started meeelting...

yup - it was a big OLE mess! but you know, the birthday boy liked it and that's all that matters...

and next year, for his 30th birthday...
he's going to love the publix cake that I buy him. ;)

Wow - that's an intense cake! I made an ice cream cake once but that's about as creative as I get. That cake looks pretty delicious though, so who cares if it's messy and melting!
