"Mom, are you sure we want to tempt Fate?"
"Sure why not? And if it doesn't come out, we have the other cake to fall back on!"
So we laugh some more, and I set to work making the frosting. And I was so glad I did! It was VERY GOOD! (I still have some if anyone wants to come over and help me lick the bowl!)
So, the end of the story is I got my cake after all, it looked goofy, but tasted great, and we ate all of it, plus more than half of the store-bought cake, which was actually pretty good too. With between 30-40 people at the shower I was glad we had two cakes instead of one!
Butter yellow mocha-strawberry topped homemade cake!
