This weekend was Nate’s birthday and boy did we celebrate…in fact, this poor pregnant lady is still recovering. Red Sox-Padres Friday night (we had to stand the whole game, but the sox won so it was worth it!), San Diego Zoo Saturday morning, and a “party” with the three of us Saturday night. It was lots of fun and Cate was WAY into all the preparations, including making the birthday cake!
Nate’s Grammy McCarthy is a great cook and has lots of yummy recipes. One of our favorites is her “Deep Dark Chocolate Cake” (click to link to recipe). It’s a bundt cake that is moist and chocolatey and yum-yum. I have a few similar recipes to this one, but this is by far my favorite. Thanks, Grammy!!!
(As you can see from the picture, Cate couldn’t keep her hands out of the cake before the party started…and she picked out and placed the candles as well. Gotta love the 2-year-old touch, although she did go timeout the 5th time she stuck her hands in the cake.)
