I've never understood that phrase.... of course you'll eat the cake if you have it. Isn't that what it's for????
So my birthday is this week and Oby's mom decided to have the fam over for dinner to celebrate! How nice! Chloe was just excited to see Papa. She's obsessed....
I was just excited for the cake. I requested Nana's lemon cake. It's SO easy and it's my FAVORITE! Here's the recipe....
1 Pkg. yellow or lemon cake mix (Nana likes it best w/ lemon)
1 Pkg. instant lemon pie pudding mix
1 Cup water
1/4 Cup vegetable oil
In a large mixing bowl mix all ingredients and beat on medium speed for 4 minutes. Then beat on high for another minute.
Pour mixture into a greased and floured 9 x13" cake pan.
Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.
When baked take the cake out of the oven let it sit 2 or 3 minutes. Prick the cake all the way through with a fork. Be careful because the cake will tear and big crumbs will come back up with the fork if you are not. Prick the whole cake. Then pour the glaze over it.
Juice of 2 lemons
2 Cups powdered sugar
Mix well. It will be lumpy at first just keep mixing. Let the cake sit 5 to 7 minutes. Make another batch of glaze or double it in the first place. Then glaze the cake again. You don't need to glaze it twice but Nana has to have everything a little over the top and OH MY it is GOOD!!
Chloe wanted to have the crayons and eat them too. Seriously, she played with this container of crayons for at least an hour, just picking them up and dropping them, then doing it again. Who'd've thought???....
