The Husband's birthday was Friday, and Muncho Mom and family came to town for a short visit, as well as Country Girl and New Husband. We enjoyed cake and ice cream with everyone then.
It was Saturday when City Girl came to town. Her birthday (and mine, also) was on Wednesday, so this was a belated party. Country Girl and New Husband once again came into town, and we had another party, complete with MORE cake and ice cream! Thankfully I have already gone for my April Weight Watchers Weigh In, and the May Weigh In will be at least two weeks away.:-)
|City Girl's cake, plate "A Proper Tea" designed by Susan Branch for Lenox.
1/2 cup butter (1 stick) softened
1# package confectioners' sugar, sifted
1/2 cup milk (as needed)
3 squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla
-Combine ingredients, beating with electric mixer until smooth. Add milk as needed, increasing the amount if frosting is too thick.
This has been City Girl's favorite cake for many years, and it was well-received this time, too.:-) She will return to her place tomorrow.
Well, it is time for me to begin cooking for the adult day care at church. That will keep me out of trouble for a day or two.:-)
