Cake Plans

Okay, so Eric's birthday is just a couple of days away. I have big cake plans. Eric wants a raspberry cake with chocolate butter cream frosting. I have to decide whether I'm gong to do this as cupcakes or an actual cake. I haven't made up my mind yet. I am coming up with my own personal creation. I'm going to use a basic yellow cake recipe from one of my cookbooks, but I'll be adding some flavored gelatin and some raspberries into it. I may add another item or two in there as well. Hopefully my creation will come out good and taste even better. I think it will, but you just never know till you do it! :) I will make sure to put the recipe and pictures up if it turns out well. If it turns out to be a disaster, I will end up making an emergency run to the store for a new cake! I'm hoping all turns out well though! :)

I also came across a neat website that has some great and easy on the budget recipes. I can't wait to try them out. I'm going to be making a few of them this coming week. Check in on the posts. I'll be sure to write up how they turn out for me!
