I have always let our kids choose what cake/dessert they want for their birthday but this year I had to be a bit practical. I was going to be busy leading up to going away so didn't have hours to spend decorating a cake, and it had to be something that we could easily pack up leftovers and take with us.
Ethan pondered on what he would like and in the end he said 'Surprise me'. But he's like vanilla cake with chocolate frosting please.
What speaks surprise birthday cake more than a pinata cake?
We had a little bit of a panic when I discovered that I didn't have enough cocoa for the buttercream frosting. So I used some chocolate topping and milo instead and it was delicious!
