Friday Cake Day
Today we decided to bake a cake. Eyvette loves this show called Cake Boss. Every day she watches Buddy design cakes on Netflix. She went ahead and designed her own cake. She baked a butterfly chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting.
I don’t cook or bake, but this was an exception. I didn’t want to buy a cake box, so we went and bought the ingredients.
We had so much fun baking together, my son decided he want to get in to the action and made the sugar cookies, and I decided to buy the package…… One thing at a time!
Eyvette designed her butterfly and did a great job. Both Eyvette and Joshua have a gift of artistic ability. God has given them this gift....... I can draw stick men!
We started off putting everything we need on the table. I forgot how much work it is to bake. Yes, I use to bake all the time and I loved it, but I think the older I get…….I dislike it.
Then we stirred together the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in large bowl.
We added eggs, milk, oil and vanilla; beat on medium speed of mixer 2 minutes. Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin). Pour batter into prepared pans. Except we don’t have a mixer, we did it ourselves.
Ready to bake
Now the frosting
In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese, butter, and marshmallow cream until creamy. Mix in the vanilla, and then gradually stir in the confections’ sugar. We added the red food coloring. Pink is what she wants.
Josh made the sugar cookies

Eyvette molded out her butterfly, pooped it in the oven, and then decorated it.
Yummy, ready to eat!
