For a bit of fun, I tweeted while baking my birthday cake yesterday. Lots of people have asked why I baked my own cake and the answer is simple. I found this recipe, fell in love with the idea of it, had to have it, and set my mind to baking it. Halfway through (or thereabouts) I realized I had forgotten to buy cream cheese at the store, a necessary ingredient for the smitten kitchen icing. So, I hopped over to all recipes for a variation of the peanut butter icing. I think it is delicious, just like a peanut butter cup. But, if you decide to make it, double the icing recipe. I ran out and wasn't able to properly ice the sides of the cake. Anyway, feeling inspired, I cut up some Reese's Cups that I
bought for just that purpose happened to have laying around, chopped them up, and sprinkled them across the top.
And, by the way, look for a giveaway from Heaven Baked Sweets coming soon. She's working on a new cookie mix, but you didn't hear it from me....
