Missy, here. And who doesn't love a birthday celebration?
My husband recently had an...ahem...major birthday. One of the decade kind. :) And a wonderful friend from church surprised him with one of her special cakes.
I'm talking the kind of cakes that go up for auction in fundraisers and create bidding wars. One last year raised over $100 for the missions auction!
And Evelyn, bless her heart, spent four hours making one for my husband to celebrate his 50th!
Look at this amazing beauty--that must've weighed over ten pounds!
Seven luscious layers!
Evelyn said she uses two batches of batter and two batches of frosting to make these. And rather than try to slice layers, she bakes seven individual thin layers.
It was so huge we had to slice and freeze most of it. We put it in individual baggies and thaw out a few pieces at a time. The enjoyment will last for weeks!
Thank you, Evelyn, for your labor of love!
What's your favorite treat on your birthday?
