Mmmmm Cake!

I love my sister in law. She is one of my best friends. She's always there when I need her. She has 3 great boys. We all live in the same town. She is talented at many things, but she is not crazy about baking like I am. When the boys were little, I would often make their birthday cakes or cupcakes for school. She makes a delicious bundt cake, but somehow she was never comfortable with cake mix and frosting.

The other day, my 13 year old nephew called and asked if he could bake a cake at my house.

"Um, sure C. I am always up for making a cake. Do you have a mix or frosting?"

"Yes, I have a mix," he assured me.

So B and I went to pick him up. He was very excited, to say the least. He is looking at the box, telling me that some words are in Spanish and English and then he looks at the expiration date.




"That's probably not good, right?"

There's nothing wrong with that cake! A little food poisoning builds character.

Michelle said...

Ehhhh, it's only a suggestion, right? Me, I would never have checked. Did you make a homemade one with him then instead?
