My Hubbys Birthday

It was my hubbys birthday on the 7th. And I had a hard time getting his surprise ready. I had the night shift (again!) on the 6th to the 7th, and right after work I went to the only store that opened at 7am. Kaufland. There I bought him some of his favorite chocolate sweets and some easter grass, fixings for selfmade frosting and decorations for a birthday cake.
At home I started up the first batter for the birthday cake and popped it in the oven, in the meantime I arranged the easter grass in a glass bowl and put the chocolate and the birthday card in it. Then off to make the second layer of the birthday cake and the frosting. Let everything get cold and put the cake together. In the mean time hubby was awake and got up. I banned him from the kitchen until I was finished.
All in all it was a great surprise for him. He was able to smell the cake but he suspected cupcakes.  Here is the picture of the cake:

I think it looks great. And it turned out really good. Even though my baking powder wasn't good anymore. The cake didn't rise much. 

On Saturday we had a coffee "party" for my hubbys relatives. I made a strawberry and vanilla pudding cake and peanutbutter cupcakes with frosting. They were the hit. Just look at them: 

They were gobbled up in no time. 

I keep saying I should open up my own bakery. I think i'd make a ton of money. Offer these and the peanutbutter cheesecake and i'd make a million in no time flat. LOL
I was just really happy that everyone enjoyed my cakes. And my hubby had a great birthday. That's all I wanted.
