Today is Sweety-boy's 1st Birthday! I can't believe it has been a whole year!
We had a party at my house to celebrate. I made 2 different kinds of cake...one for Daniel that is an "unhealthy" cake and one for me that was a "healthy" cake. ( Ephraim had healthy cake, too.)
Daniel's cake was a recipe that I usually use for wedding cakes that is really good. It is orange-almond with buttercream. My "healthy" cake is a chocolate cake made with whole-wheat and is sugar-free...YAHOO! I frosted it with cream cheese and whipped cream sweetened with a little agave...so not completely vegan. but better than the alternative. we were in heaven. If you want to try the recipe you can find it here. (I tweaked it with a little orange peel and extract)
We started a tradition with our kids to make them their own little cakes, and just let them "dive in" so we had to keep the tradition going.
He was a little Timid at first but all of a sudden realized..."This is for me!! By the time he was done it was everywhere!
That's what I'm talkin' about baby...OH YAH!
I love you sweety-boy.
