My sister-in-law turned forty today. Tonight we had a small surprise birthday party for her. It was perfect.
Sadly, her father had passed away a few days ago after lingering health problems but her mother wanted to party to go on anyway. And it was the perfect thing! There were so many of her relatives in from across the country and it gave everyone something to do besides sit back and think of her Dad.
Kim had bought a large white birthday cake but was afraid there wouldn’t be enough so she asked me to make a chocolate Texas Sheet Cake as well.
I love it when you’re making for a crowd of people and it turns out perfectly!!!
The Texas Sheet Cake must have been really good as Eddie had it several times a day until he finished it off. He’s been so sick and for some reason this cake really hit the spot for him.
