Happy Birthday to ME!


And another one bites the dust…..really it is just another day in the life of me.  Waking up early to enjoy coffee, search the net a few minutes then a easy 3 mile run.  Only to come home to sweet birthday wishes, hugs and kisses from my children and husband.  I enjoyed morning t-ball and softball, lunch with my family, swimming, short nap, made supper, then off to a town team baseball game.  All in all it was the birthday for me.


I always make birthday cakes or cupcakes for friends and family so my birthday is no exception.  Since my birthday is in the heat of summer I like to keep the cake light even though I LOVE chocolate and peanut butter.  I will have to celebrate my half birthday in January to have that cake.  So this year I choose my favorite cupcakes,  HOMEMADE FUNFETTI CUPCAKES, made into a square layered cake.


I have never used my 8 x 8 inch square pan so I did some work on google and found to to be similar volume as your standard 9 inch round baking pan.  This is a helpful link to different Pan sizes and an 8 x 8 square pan similar to mine.



This cake is fun and delicious.  A wonderful vanilla base with sweet whipped vanilla buttercream frosting and sprinkles for added fun.
