Cake or Death?

by Janie Jones

In this case, quite possibly both.

Death by cake. What a way to go.

Today was Leif’s birthday party. As per tradition, I baked him a birthday cake from scratch. This year’s confection was a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cake. If cake could kill this one would be the way to go. Seriously, it tasted exactly like a Reese Peanut Butter Cup, which is Leif’s favorite candy. The cake itself is chocolate, as you can see in the photos. What you can’t tell too well is that the cake was filled with a peanut butter frosting that tastes just like the inside of a RPBC. To reduce the richness a tiny iota, the external frosting is of real whipping cream with a hint of peanut butter flavoring. Then garnished with mini RPBC and one huge honking Big RPBC on the center top. The tall thin candle is “glued” on with peanut butter frosting.

There were many ooohs and aaahs when the cake appeared, and the spud says: Uncle Leif, you’re fourteen!

Happy Birthday Leif!
