He Made Me a Cake
For my thirty third birthday, which you can read all about HERE, Justin wanted to bake me a cake. Although he has made cupcakes before, and he’s pretty good in the kitchen, he has never attempted making a full cake by himself. And completely from scratch! My homeschooler, Dylan, was with us for the day (he’s pretty much part of the family now) so he stayed in the kitchen with Justin, working through each step. I was only allowed in the kitchen to take some pictures, but I did peek in a couple of times and admired how they worked together. They were both so excited. I don’t really like sweet icing, but I do LOVE cream. My cake was therefore iced in freshly whipped cream. Hmmmm… basically my dream cake: chocolate, cream, and berries!
Here comes the mushy stuff… *You have been warned (and I don’t always forewarn)* I am truly blessed to have such an incredible man in my life. He goes far above and beyond, and there is no denying that everything that he does is done with love! I have never even hinted at wanting a birthday cake, but he really wanted to do something special for me.
I love you Justin! You are truly a gem, and I am so grateful for the way that you love me!!!
Here are some pictures of Justin (and Dylan) making my birthday cake…
The final verdict: The cake was moist and delicious!
