The Hubs had a Birthday over the weekend…and I baked a cake!! Which is not my norm. I also baked Red Velvet Cupcakes…which were Yummo!! I’ll be happy when there all gone so I can stop fighting the temptation of having another. There like chips, you can’t just have one, I promise. Anyway...Betty Crocker I am not. BUT I gave it my all and everything worked out.

We decided rather than waste the money on a tiny $3.00 tube of icing just to write Happy Birthday - to go with something sweet and sour to decorate the top. I think I paid $1.09, that's a buck-o-nine, which does my pocketbook just fine since the cake was on sale for 4/$5.00 and icing 3/$4.00. It all eats just the same, except I saved a few pennies versus buying the store bought kind. 

This is Heidi...she is a Mini-Schnauzer and the Hubs Birthday gift...Pretty cute don't cha think?  

I made him a steak dinner, a cake, and cupcakes...It was a lovely day with the two of us lying around watching a little television...which is not our norm.

Birthdays are a celebration of life. Without this day...we wouldn't have cake or one another...Be Good to You.
