I have a Valentine baby. And in two short days she will be six. I can’t talk about it…
In the mother of all moves, I somehow lost misplaced my heart shaped baking pan. And because a heart shaped cake for a Valentine’s Day Birthday is non-negotiable, I had to purchase a replacement lickity split. I know, I know, I could bake a square cake and a round cake and ‘cut and paste’ together to form a heart, but the notion of having to deal with that much pressure sends shivers up my spine.
I found replacement pans, but they are 12″ and my lost forever pan was 10″. So, this morning Littlest Middlest and I made a test batch of batter, upping the quantity so that her heart shaped cake would be nice and fluffy and not a sorry, flat flop!
We (and by we I mean she) are still deciding on the flavor of cake. I hate to rush the creative process of a soon-to-be-six-year-old, but chop-chop…momma’s gotta cake to bake!
What was your favorite birthday cake growing up?
