To Quote Erin:
Sometimes I don’t know if you or Steve told me something because you two sound the same in my head.
Ellen: Yeah, I’m not sure what to say about that. Good thing I like your husband, Steve, or I might just be disturbed.
Erin: Just know it explains why I don’t use your many rolls of designer duct tape to seal up your pie hole.
Ellen: Anyway, beside sharing space in Erin’s head, we also share a penchant for decorating birthday cakes for our babies.
Erin: So without further ado…
We’ll start with Steve’s cakes. His family owned a Carvel Ice Cream Store, so he has some real deal skills.
Ellen’s skills are purely amateur, but she does make her own marshmallow fondant. Her family also has a lovely tradition where the birthday girl gets her own mini cake to eat by herself…without a fork. Don’t worry. The guests get their very own saliva free cupcakes. Ellen is sanitary like that.
This is Ellen’s most recent birthday cake: Coca-Cola Cake. It is not decorated elaborately, but it is chocolate heaven. This chocolate buttercream is going to be Ellen’s go-to frosting. You may be not be lucky enough to come to our parties, but we are kind enough to share the recipes.
