Don't get too excited . . . it was box cake. You know - the kind that you empty the box, mix in some oil, eggs, water and then bake for 30 minutes.
We had fun, but I couldn't wait for the layers to cool to put icing on them, so I stuck them in the fridge. It worked. Also, being a big fan of icing, we put more than the normal amount to make it 'extra good'.
For some reason, that cake looked better and tasted better - at least to Katherine and I. Sometimes it has to do with what you put into it.
Oh, yeah, Happy Birthday Amy!
