make a funfetti cake?! Keep reading to find out!
First let me back up to yesterday evening. My dad was outside snowblowing the entire driveway (we live on a large hill) by himself. I felt bad and felt like I could contribute slightly by shoveling a path in the back for the dogs, and shoveling off the front porch. My mom caught me in action. *Don’t mind my mismatching clothing, I threw on what I could find to stay warm.*
I was excited to get back into a routine today. I ate my breakfast and set out to the gym. I ran 4.5 miles at an incline of 2.0. If felt great to break a good sweat!
Today is my lttle brothers 22nd birthday. The cake he requested: Funfetti. Haha, I just laugh at this because I am a total chocolate cake and chocolate frosting kind of girl. Also, my mom is an awesome homemade cake baker, so the fact that he wanted a boxed cake is funny. Late this afternoon, my mom, my brothers girlfriend Brittany, and I set out to make him a darn good funfetti cake. Yes, it takes 3 women to make a boxed cake. 🙂

The aussies wanted to make sure we didn’t drop anything:

While the cakes were in the oven, we set out to make some dinner. On the menu: whole wheat penne pasta, authentic Italian olive oil, pesto, fresh parsley, parmesean cheese and broccoli:
The olive oil brought back from Italy:
Yum! I definitely had seconds. My brother and his girlfriend are currently at the movies seeing Avatar, but while they were gone I frosted the cake. When they get back, we will cut it!
We didn’t go out to dinner tonight for Tom’s birthday because my dad is out of town. I am excited to go out to dinner tomorrow, though. I am still not sure where we are going, but I know it will be delicious! Stay tuned!
What is your ideal birthday cake?
