So first I made the green cake. Now, normally I use a white cake mix but I didn't have one. I did have a lemon cake mix that we really like a lot. So I decided to make that. I added A LOT of green food coloring because the yellow color of the mix just didn't want to turn green!
Then I baked it in a bunt pan and it looked pretty good for a green cake...but then I turned it out on to a cooling rack and it suddenly went from shamrock green to this pond scum green covered in brown pond sludge...It was a pretty unanimous ... ooooooh, that is just wrong! I thought that was pretty funny so I put it on a fancy cake plate...and then I decided to really turn it up a notch and add some green icing...and trust me this photo is not actually showing the cake to it's full amazingness - it didn't even look this good ;O]...It was by far the ugliest cake I have ever seen! I think this cake may go down in family history! It was that funny. It tasted great - and as long as you closed your eyes everything was fine! Yeah, I don't think I'll be making a green lemon cake again any time soon.
And the mailman brought me this...Mark gave me a Saint Patrick's Day gift(well, it's really an anniversary gift). It's the Kindle 2 I've been campaigning for! Hooray! I'm very excited about this here thingy!...
Have a great Wednesday!
