foodie friday #7

making a birthday cake 
open mix
follow directions
the 'new' oven may have made these a little too well done

 add some icing and everything looks good
tasted great

ToonMan says
Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes!

  4. They don't sell boxed cake mixes here or frostings already made, but I would soooo like to have a good ol' Betty Crocker cake.... Thanks for the memory!!!

  5. You know what?

    I loved this.

    The photos, the thought of you actually baking a cake (which surprised me), your beautifully composed photos, and then this last one of Ray . . . in that shirt with that expression.

    This is love.

  6. Kate is right. This whole thing is loaded with thoughtfulness and love, and the photos are beautiful.

    wv: sanatio. Ray probably had to take a sanatio, a longer version of a siesta, after eating this delectable cake.

  7. Don't forget to make a wish when you blow out the candle.

    Enjoy the cake!:)
