I don't bake.

No big secret among my friends and family- I don't bake- I don't cook- I can hardly boil water... and it has not been for a lack of trying.

SO sometime during our l-a-z-y Sunday Sweet Pea who had watched entirely way too much "Cake Boss" on TLC says “Mommy, can we make a cake?"

Me- of course I said “Of course Baby Girl” and I am thinking to myself Yep, Daddy would love to help you bake a cake!

So tonight on my way home from work I stopped at Target and bought a cake mix and yes even a cake pan. I was determined I was going to make a cake with my daughter.

So… WE did it! We made a cake.

NOT Just ANY cake but a Chocolate Cake with Cream Cheese frosting! Of course Sweet Pea wants to know when we are going to decorate it too look like the ones on TV. Well honey, we need a little practice first... a lot of practice.

To top off my evening of firsts... I decided to make Chocolate covered Strawberries!

Yep even drizzled white chocolate!

I am very proud of myself... lets ignore the fact that at least 3 of them pictured here... yeah they don't exist anymore... (What diet plan?)

What do you enjoy cooking or baking?


  1. I love to bake! Which I'm sure you can see from my blog... If you keep trying you'll get better at it. The chocolate covered strawberries look delicious!

  2. those chocolate covered strawberries look DELICIOUS! Love the white chocolate drizzle.

  3. We would get along very well... we may starve together but..lol.. I dont cook at all, I see nothing fun about it and I totally suck at it, I Think I am the only person who can burn a grilld cheese sandwhich..lol... anyway.. great job on the cake.. I can handle a cake too every once in a while..lol. Have a great weekend!
