I could have baked a cake for A's birthday, but here's how cake distribution goes in our household.
P bakes a cake.
A eats a slice. P eats a slice. A praises the cake and goes to bed.
P eats the rest of the cake.
So, in the interest of our shiny new healthy lifestyle, I made cupcakes instead. Four of them.
(As for the frosting, what you see above is lite cool whip with some lemon zest and chopped crystallized ginger. Yeah, sometimes nothing but pure synthetic taste will satisfy my palate. lol )
The birthday boy ate three cupcakes. Success!!
