i mean, anyone that gets 2 parties, 2 cakes....is just plain spoiled! we had the local fam over tonight for dinner and MORE cake! really, it couldn't happen to a nicer kid! the mailbox was even full of cards for cory- i think that he felt pretty special today! i let him open some new clothes this morning, so he had some fresh duds...so, if any of you have a 12-year-old in your life, and are in need of some gift ideas:
but, you really should make them work for it! my dad wrapped up this present from he and my mom- my brother and i immediately recognized the yellow straps- these were wrapped around many-a-sleeping bag or foam mat- i couldn't believe they were being passed onto the next generation of scouter! ...and this was just the first layer:
and the more packing tape, the more it prolongs the fun!
so, tonights cake was a bit of an experiment!
So, all you do is mix the choc cake mix, with a can of coke until it's fluffy and light... and then cook it at 350 for about 25 min. i frosted it and topped it with some army guys, m&m's and some frosting! the cake was yummy! i recommend it! but no one beleived me that i made it with a can of diet coke.
SIDENOTE: if you make this recipie into cupcakes, they are only 1pt on weight watchers.
