I enjoyed spending most of the day in the kitchen baking a birthday cake and cookie for my boys to share with their youth groups at church tonight. Nick will turn 12 on Friday and Camdyn will turn 14 on Saturday.
Several months ago, I came across a cake decorated like a chess board. Nick loves chess, so I showed him the picture and he was sold on the idea. It was fun to make, but a lot of work. I bought a mold to make the chess pieces out of chocolate. The top is fondant squares Everything you see in the picture is edible. It was a huge hit!
Camdyn prefers cookie to cake so his was much easier to make and didn't take as much time.
I tasted both the cake and the cookie, as well as a homemade peanut butter cup made by my friend Pat Puckett (thanks Pat - it was delicious). She said my blog posts inspired her to make them last night so she shared one with me. Needless to say, I've got a little sugar rush going on!
