let them eat cake




best.birthday cake. ever. Seriously, this one is not for the faint of heart. One and a quarter pounds of cream cheese and 3 sticks of butter are in the frosting alone. But MAN is it good. The recipe comes from the November issue of Martha Stewart Living Magazine. You should know, though, that there is no danger of you eating the cake by yourself. I'm a sugaraholic and Ben is forever scarred by the clean plate club, but neither of us made it through our slice. It's just a 9" round, but it would probably serve 25 people easily.

sorry the photos are kind of blurry. I was too lazy to get out the tripod and the photo was taken in complete darkness (excepting the candle light, of course).

That looks scrumptous!!! Man if Ben couldn't finish his piece it must have been intense. After seeing him eat two huge pieces of that strawberry cake with that tremendous load of frosting this summer.....dang....Hope you had a great B-day Ben!!!
