When the kid’s have a birthday I generally make them a special cake. When Lucas turned 15 this month we had a really busy week and I was out of everything I needed in the pantry, didn’t realize it, and with two soccer games that day he wound up getting a cake from the grocery store on his actual birthday. *gasp* the horror! But I promised him that I would make him two of whatever kind of cake he wanted for Memorial Day weekend. Rootbeer Cake is his favorite, so that was his request.
The topping is supposed to look like the topping on the creme soda vanilla cake … the rootbeer cake wound up a little short on topping. I’m sure you can guess what happened there.
