Mmmm...Cake and Icing!

This seems to be the place to say some crazy random stuff...so here it goes!

My oldest son just turned 8. We had a birthday party here at our house..of course, I made his cake. It was from a box and delicious! I made the cream cheese icing from scratch...and omg! This stuff has totally RUINED my diet!





So, while I sit here at my computer with the baby asleep and the 2 boys completely hooked on Minecraft and paying me no mind, waiting for someone...anyone to start some sort of activity on this website..I am eating this amazing cake I've made and feeling happy that my second child's 6th birthday is just 1 week away so that I can eat this all over again.

Anyone else care to partake in the boring conversation about being a parent?

Is the blue part due to food coloring or did you use some odd flavor?

Happy Birthday to your oldest son! Your blue velvet cake reminds me of the Smurfs - is your son a Smurf fan?

Thanks Rossie! No, not a smurf fan..but he asked for blue cake and red icing. Normally I would dye the cake but his favorite cake is red velvet and now they make it blue and it is amazing!

I used that blue velvet for cupcakes the other day, with blue icing and swedish fish and small fish sprinkles on top. Super cute and yum!

I dislike food coloring but, in honor of Swedish fish and Pride weekend: rainbow cake.

Yuuuumy! Do you like cream cheese icing? It always pairs best with the velvet cake. I'll have to give you my recipe!

K but you have to try it and report back what you think HAHA! you might be my mentor for Eden...but I'm yours on the icing!

1 pkg softened cream cheese
1 large tub cool whip, thawed
1-2 cups powdered sugar

Mix about 1 cup with the cream cheese until they are blended together well.
FOLD in the cool whip with the cream cheese/sugar mixture

It usually sets fairly quickly but is a lot thinner than normal icing. I like to add a little extra sugar to get it to thicken it up after adding the dye and whatnot. If it still seems a little to runny just refridgerate it for a while.

ENJOY and don't forget to tell me how ya like it!
