It's too bad I made these cakes look ugly because they sure tasted delicious!
Even if I had a decent camera these cakes would still appear as ugly as they turned out.
I am thankful for my amazing neighbors. I have neighbors next to me and neighbors in front of me who are the absolute best. We for sure have the ugliest house on the block, live next to a loud road, and can't afford landscaping, but it is all worth it for neighbors like this. While we were on vacation our one neighbor was kind enough to mow our lawn so we wouldn't have a jungle to come home to. Let me remind you it is 115 degrees outside.
The other neighbors came over the day we moved in with goodies and a helping hand. We have loved them from the start. Unfortunately one of their dog's died while THEY were on vacation so a cake was in order.
I made Creme De Menthe cakes- super easy, very refreshing, always delicious!
1 box of white cake mix
Creme De Menthe (Liqueur)
1 container of cool whip (thawed)
1 jar of Hershey's hot fudge ice cream topping
Directions: Make Cake mix according to instructions and add 2 Tablespoons of Creme De Menthe. Bake according to pan preference and directions. Allow to cool. Next spread cooled cake with fudge topping. Put in fridge to cool. While cake is in the fridge add 1 1/2 Tablespoons of Creme De Menthe to cool whip and fold in. Spread over cake and put back in the fridge until ready to serve. Serve and Enjoy!
I forgot to purchase something cute to decorate it with so I attempted to paint on it with food coloring. I wish I could say my 5 year old did the decorating, but alas I don't have a 5 year old. I confess it looked better in my mind than it did on the cake.I wrote on the other cake "Im sorry" which looked so pathetic I then attempted to smear the writing into a pretty mint green. The end result was worse than the first mistake. Someday I will be writing below a gorgeous picture of a cake decorated by me. For now I will say I still have my training wheels on.It's the thought that counts right? What are you thankful for today?
