It's her Birthday

My sister asked the other day if I would still make her a cake for her birthday and what she would have to do for it to happen. I told her I would make her a cake for ten dollars. She agreed and then I said that she just needed to buy a few things and I would make her a cake. In the end the supplies she bought cost about five dollars.

She told me what kind she wanted and my first thought was... really? It was a chocolate cake that I had made before. It wasn't my favorite but if that is what she wants I'll make it. It's her Birthday.

I did the frosting a bit different this time around just for fun.
Here is the cake.

Okay, I'll admit I am not a huge fan of chocolate cake but with this one I'm being converted.

I only make good things.

Most days I spend baking something. It doesn't really matter what it is but I remain with my mantra, "I only make good things." I was talking to my sister the other day because her birthday is coming up, so I told her I would make her a cake. She asked me what kind and I said whatever you want. She said she wanted a sugar-free cake and so I said never mind.

Today was no exception, all I had in mind ware apples. We have apples and need to use them. I thought of making a crisp or a pie. I looked at different recipes and couldn't decide so, I made both. Not as two separate dishes but combining them to make something good. I used parts that sound good and added extras to add to the goodness.

This was the result. It looked good so I cut it.

Yeah, it was that good.
