Dan (my sister’s bf) turned 30 on Friday and to celebrate we all went to my mom’s for dinner and cake!
who ever said you don’t win friends with salad never met me and Nic
YAY Big Salads! We had pizza but we were still hungry so we took to the bowl of leftover salad
I made Dan’s cake – it was a chocolate cake with coffee buttercream – I’ll post the recipe as it was simply divine!
Oh….and it was The Death Star
I’ll be turning 30 this year as well, so I know how special it is and I wanted to make Dan a cake that he would not only appreciate, but one that would make him say OMG!
He loves Star Wars, especially the villains so this cake was perfect. Although – NEVER will I tackle anything that requires so much detail and that’s a sphere again! lol
helping taking over to blow out candles…..
As you can see he couldn’t wait to help Dan blow out all 30 candles….including the one we shoved in like a laser I was super impressed with the cake – it not only tasted and looked great, It even sliced nicely..
Anyway, it was a great time with family and I know I say it all the time but I’m thankful every time we get together
