Mom, Recipes and Smash Cake

My mom is in town! MY MOM IS IN TOWN!
I am beyond excited. Over the moon.

We have been just hanging out. Cooking, baking, shopping, playing Phase 10, watching little boy.

It has been so good y'all.

Some recipes:

*I made the Zucchini Boats again. So yummy.

*Also made Chile Colorado again. Made a couple extra and threw them in the freezer for next week.

*I tried this chicken. Good,  comforting, lots of leftovers. Will be good to unfreeze next week after my surgery.

*Made this cake. Was pretty good. I started with a box of Golden Vanilla. I am still working on my butter cream recipes so last night I used a can. Whoops.
I am starting to practice a smash cake for Maddox's 1st birthday. This cake was my first try. It is 2.5 six inch round cakes stacked on top of each other.
I found out that adding those sprinkles around the bottom of the cake is much harder than it looks and I also found out that I am a crappy froster. I must practice. Which means a lot of cake. I don't need a lot of cake in this house. Help. LOL.

Off to go be with my mom.

  1. That's so fun that you're mom is there visiting you! Still waiting for the day my mom comes to visit me, I lived in the US for five years (originally from Germany) and so far it has been me who flew back and forth! :)
    The cake looks awesome, great job!
    Enjoy the time with your mom!
