Last year, I tried to make my wife a cake for her birthday, because A) she doesn't like ice cream cake and B) no one should have to make their own cake on their birthday. I made a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and sprinkles. Unfortunately, I did not use frosting from a can. I used it from a buttercream recipe, and I made it too thin. So the top layer kept slipping off the bottom. I had to fasten the layers to each other with toothpicks. And no one wants to pick toothpicks out of their cake.
This year I made a zucchini cake because we have a ton of zucchini in our garden and need to do something with it. It's exactly like a carrot cake, but with zucchini instead. Everything went much better this time. Except I forgot the cinnamon. Cinnamon is rather a essential ingredient in a cake like that because its dependent on the spice for flavor.
So apparently every year, I screw up my wife's cake in some way. Lovely.
Anyway, love you, honey. Happy birthday.
