The most beautiful cake in the world!

Today is my birthday!

We won't discuss which birthday exactly.

Although it has been said:
"You either get older or you don't."
and I don't prefer the don't!

To celebrate, the Hubbs made me a cake!
From scratch!

He searched and searched for a recipe with berries...
you see I love cakes with berries...
you get the picture.

He found a recipe that sounded fantastic!
(from here)
Blueberry Buttercream Cake with Blueberry Filling

He slaved away...
scoured my extremely unorganized and crowded pantry for all sorts of exotic ingredients...
such as baking powder,
baking soda,
cake flour,
vanilla extract...
you get the picture.

He made the cake from scratch...
he made the blueberry glaze filling from scratch...
he made the blueberry-buttercream icing from scratch...
and I'll tell you what,
that cake tastes fantastic!

However, making buttercream icing is a little tough if you've never had the experience before...
and when your wife decides to put the whisk attachment to the mixer in the dishwasher just before you begin to make the buttercream icing...
and when your wife doesn't really know the exact reason that the paddle attachment won't work quite as well as the whisk attachment so she lets you proceed with making buttercream icing with a paddle rather than a whisk... the blueberry-buttercream icing was a bit more of a blueberry-buttercream glaze?

but it's the thought and the taste that count in the end!


Thanks Hubbs!!!

It was WAY better than Sugarbakers (and that's pretty impressive)!


  1. Happy Happy Birthday to you! And GREAT job, Bud, on the cake! It does look scrumptious, homemade, and most importantly from the heart :)

  2. Wow! I'm impressed. What a sweet treat and hubby.

  3. I am so so super late....but HAPPY BIRTHDAY pretty Jenn!! That cake looks absolutely delicious! What a talented man you have! :D

  4. p.s. I just looked over at that little picture of tiny Caleb on the right...the pic of him and Bud reading...& it totally made me laugh out loud. Look how tiny he was!!!! AWWW!
