Today is Kid A’s birthday. He’s 24. DJ and I had a casual family dinner for him on Saturday, and I baked a cake. Dark chocolate with caramel cream filling and marshmallow frosting. It looked a lot like a Halloween cake. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen this exact cake somewhere in an October magazine or blog post, but this one was a birthday cake.
Kid A’s childhood nickname was Mr. Boo. I have no idea why, but we still call him that from time to time. So I made a Mr. Boo cake for the kid born on All Saints Day. I’m not so great with frosting and decorating, but I do love lame jokes.
