It's my own fault really. Today was going to be a relaxing/baking day. Well, I've been relaxing so much that I never got around to baking. And yes, it's up to me to make my own birthday cake. DH makes funny ones. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Plus growing up it was always our treat to pick our cake, bake and decorate it just the way we wanted. Yeah, my Mom was good at 'hiding' chores. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/ROTFLMAO.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rotflmao"><br><br>
Usually I buy a cake mix and frosting but never got around to it this week so I was going to make a cake and icing from scratch. But I just realized that I'm starting so late that the cake won't have time to cool before it has to be frosted and I'm just not in the mood.<br><br>
Sigh. So now I'll have to settle for a cardboard store bought cake. And I don't even know WHAT I'm making for supper. Ladies, I think it's time to order in. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Definitely time to order in! It's my birthday today too, and I sent my dh to work with money and instructions to bring home supper. Do you have the Moosewood "Cooks at Home" cookbook? There's a really good "Six Minute Chocolate Cake" in there. Page 322, in my edition. It really does take 6 minutes, plus about 25 (in our crappy oven) to cook. Would that be fast enough?<br>
Have a wonderful day!<br><br>
