Just for EWE!   

Oh, Miss [info]schnappycat, remember how I promised to extend your birthday? Well, I only meant to extend it one day but I think it might be worth the wait! Check out your presents below…

First, what is a (birth)day without cake? Sadly, I couldn’t be there to make one for you but I will some day! For now, I’ve got a great chocolate cake recipe for you… now you just need to con a friend or your hubby into making it for you. *wink*

The-Perfect-Present.com Chocolate Buttermilk Cake Recipe

2 Cups Sugar
¾ Cup Hershey’s Cocoa
2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
2 Eggs (I use large eggs)

you can freeze buttermilk so you have it when you need it to make another cake.)
1 Cup Mazola Oil

Obviously you can use whatever you like. But we have
found that the simplest icing works best on this cake.

  1. Place the powdered sugar, softened butter, and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Add a little milk.
  2. Mix at high speed until smooth and creamy. Add milk as required to get the right consistency.

But I can’t end it there…
Really. You must have some eyecandy to go with your other sweets:

Look, Laura, Lamb wants you to take a road trip with him!

Hope you had a wonderful birthday, m’dear. Sorry your presents were late! Blame UPS or FEDEX. *g*

    Ooh, ooh! Awesome! Yay! Look at the pretty Lambs. So pretty. Thanks so much. I needed this today, as I am feeling a bit blue. And these pics definitely put a smile on my face.

    Damn, but why do I feel dirty looking at these pics? I think I know Michael too well now. Hee hee. ;)

    *adds to memories*

    (Sorry to butt in, but I didn’t know you could freeze buttermilk!! I always end up buying a pint every few months I need it and wasting half of it :/ Cool — you learn something new every day… :)

    Aww, I’m glad you liked it :)

    I was going to actually make a lamb cake and then post a picture for you but then the stupid person on the plane got me sick so I didn’t get it done. That and it might have been a bit torturous to say, “Hey look at the cake I made you but, sorry!, you don’t get to have any.” ;)

    *hugs*

    You’re not butting in! Yep, you can freeze it. I have glass jars with screw on tops that I use to freeze it in since they work better than the cartons (obviously). I don’t generally freeze it for too long but, if you’re just going a few months in between uses, you should be good.
