Jonah turned 8 this year! And he loves candy. So by his request I made a candy cake – ie a vanilla cake with white frosting and tons of sprinkles, lollipops, jelly beans, marshmallows hidden in the center and Scooby Doo chews – sigh – what a happy boy! Such a joy for me to do!
Yes I do use Betty Crocker Cake Mix – and frosting – why not? Its SO easy – and its really the decorations that matter most to Jonah.. So that is where I spend my time. Of course when we cook together – we do it from scratch a lot of the time – as that is the fun of being together. He loved it! And here is a gorgeous picture of Jonah taken just a few weeks before his birthday. A very handsome young man don’t you agree?
