My daughter turned 2 yesterday! I can't believe it. 2 years goes by pretty freaking fast!!! She is a pizza loving girl so we were planning on having pizza for her little party. I was trying to decide hat kind of cake to make her. I googled all the things she liked with "cake" after to see what would come up. I had a couple of options but since we were having a PIZZA party, I figured we needed a pizza cake to go with it. It is amazing how real these cakes look considering how EASY it was! So here is what it looked like.
The frosting probably took my the longest trying to get the cool right but then gave up and stayed with this color. The pepperonis are fruit roll ups cut into circles. The olives ( because she LOVES olives ) are black frosting I made circles with on a sheet on parchment paper and let dry then I just threw them on. The cheese is white chocolate that you just use a potato peeler or a cheese grater. I used a cheese grater. Overall I think it looks pretty good. If you have the time and are interested google pizza cakes and see what comes up. There was some amazing ones to look at for ideas. It was fun reading what everyone used for all of the toppings and what not. Also, I read up on how to make box cakes mixes better. I used milk instead of water and butter instead of oil and I think this cake was super moist and yummy! I will for sure be doing that again.
I have been a baking queen lately! Since I have been getting more and more into recipes I think once a week or so I am going to be posting something I made for dinner or a great recipe. Everyone needs good recipes right?! I have been into the whole wheat stuff because that is what I am supposed to eat on the south beach diet. And I recently discovered something I had never heard of before but I will save it for another post! I am off to bed EARLY! My kids wore me out this week. Well, that and all the baking. Oh and just so I don't forgot check out the "only in Texas" thing I did to help us not miss Texas so much
I REALLY wanted to decorate it with the red white and blue with the star but after baking and making so many other things I gave in and just did white frosting. These were delicious cookies. I had no problem eating at least 6 of these bad boys this weekend which just so you know are SO NOT south beach diet approved!! But it was my babies birthday and so we lived it up! Tomorrow I go back on South beach and hopefully can get my self doing my work out video more then I did last week. HOw many times did I do it last week you ask, ONCE! And I was sore for 3 days...
