So I just realized this month has been my biggest blogging month ever - as in the most posts in a month.. um...lucky you? haha. Yeeeeah. Guess I've been catching up since the holidays got us so busy.
Here's some more of Tony's bday... my mom decorated for us just like this every birthday so obviously it doesn't feel like a birthday unless I do too. (; Tony had a spoiled birthday (I have the job of making it seem extra special and not like he's getting some leftover Christmas presents I left in the closet). His favorite gift from me was probably an HD DVR receiver for our directv. Am I making all 3 guys that read this jealous? (hi dad)
Tony requested "rainbow cake" this year- it's easy peasy to make plus- it's yummy and looks pretty so I thought I'd share the recipe!
While I decorated and baked the cake Brody watched the first season of the smurfs and Hyrum got some tummy time in.
Rainbow Cake Recipe:
(recipe from my mother-in-law)
2 baked 8 or 9 inch white cake layers cooled
2 pkg. 3oz. each- jello, any two flavors (I like orange and cherry)
2 cups boiling water
1 8oz. container cool-whip thawed
Place cake layers, top sides up in 2 clean layer pans, poke each cake with fork all over. Dissolve each flavor gelatin separately in 1 cup of the boiling water and carefully spoon each over one of the cake layers.
Chill 3-4 hours. Dip cake pan in warm water for 10 seconds and turn out onto serving plate. Top with 1 cup of the whipped topping. Unmold the second cake layer and place carefully on first layer. Frost top and sides with remaining topping. Chill.
