The Mister Makes a Cake


Since we hit the one year milestone yesterday we decided to go through our boxes of pandemic pantry items to see what had expired. This was close. 

The Mister wanted to eat it but I didn't. I'm not putting anything pink or sugary in my newly restored mouth. I told him if he wanted it he had to make it....and to my surprise he did. 

I stood back and watched. Everything went pretty well until it was time to get the cakes out of the pans. One stuck. There was a big hole in the middle but a little frosting would fix that. 

He turned out to be a whiz at icing. 

He took his time and got every speck out of the container. I usually lose interest halfway through, glop it on and toss the rest. 

Not bad for someone who literally can't even boil an egg or make iced tea without help. He had a big piece with dinner and called it a success. Now I have to figure out how to freeze the leftovers because I know he won't finish it anytime soon and as pretty as it looks...I'm still not tempted. 



  1. That looks so tempting. I would love to stop by and share a piece with The Mister. I'm sorry your mouth is still too sore.
    Freezing it sounds like a great idea.

  2. I think you have to freeze it between wax paper and wrapped in saran wrap, but what do I know I can barely make tacos and a few other simple meals. So sorry your mouth is still an issue. Stay safe.

  3. I agree with Mere. First put it in the fridge so the icing hardens. Then cut slices and put in wax paper and then plastic. You can take out a slice at a time. Nice job

  4. I'm impressed! My guy cooks but doesn't bake! The cake turned out very well!
