Daughter's Gfcf Birthday Cake

Recommended Posts

Daughter wanted a video game themed party for family only. She's turning 8 on Monday. Since the "cool" aunt & uncle are bringing their Nintendo Wii to share, I made a Wii controller for the cake. I'm soooooooooooooooo excited about it!!

Cake is Pamela's Luscious Chocolate, baked in 9 x 13 pan, torted lengthwise, filled and iced with homemade "buttercream" icing (really just shortening, powdered sugar, vanilla, and butter flavor).

My daughter's name is River, but I spelled it Riiver and gave it a TM symbol for Wii theme.

Thanks everyone!

The cake was divine, actually. We hadn't done a Pamela's mix before and it turned out totally scrumptous. It was also a very "workable" cake as far as torting, filling, layering, etc. I highly recommend!

There isn't any cake left, either, and only River and I were in need of the special recipe. All other family guests were gluten-eaters. Yay Pamela's Luscious Chocolate Cake!

:lol:
