First Birthday: Cakes

Utter and totally exhausting exploding cake night.

Sigh.

I should be in bed right now.  But instead I am waiting on the second cake to cool COMPLETELY.  Why do I even bother with pretty bundt pans?  I torture myself at least once a year with this problem.

Ok, rewind time.

I started with the recipe on the back of the Fred & Friends sandwich cake pan.

I made a double batch so that I would have two cakes.

I made the second bake, the bundt cake, a lemon and poppy seed pound cake.  I zested an entire lemon and added the poppy seeds.

I greased both pans and floured them.

I did not wait long enough on the bundt cake to take it out.  Sometimes I wait too long.  I cannot figure out the happy medium.

At least the sandwich cake is still in one piece.  I am going to wait longer on this one.  Check back tomorrow for creative ways to piece a cake back together.  Hey, at least this way I don’t have to worry about slicing her first piece of birthday cake.

I guess I could always go and buy an ice cream cake.

At least we have a pretty peach pie to eat tomorrow, in honor of my father in law’s birthday.
