Yesterday was Jerry's birthday so I made him a birthday cake! :) I made a Buttermilk Chocolate cake with Chocolate Buttermilk frosting, both recipes from my Better Homes and Gardens Old-Fashioned Home Baking cookbook. The fun part was in the assembly! I have an old booklet from Baker's Coconut & Chocolate called Party Cut-Up Cakes. The booklet was my mom's and is copyright 1968. She would make our birthday cakes using the ideas from this little book. I combined the hobby horse and the giraffe to make this horse. I didn't have any licorice to make the cute headstall, reins and tail but I think he looks okay and Jerry liked him and that is what is important! :)
How cute is this duck!?!
