Happy Valentines Day

This year we decided to keep it fairly simple. He got flowers for me, I made a cake for him (and Ava made a card). It's a 4 layer cake (2 layers strawberry cake and 2 layers white cake) with a mousse frosting. The frosting is what makes this so delicious. Two cups of milk, two cups of Cool Whip, and two 4oz boxes of pudding*. I was out of red food coloring (oops!) so I improvised and added a little strawberry Jello to the frosting to give it a hint of pink. Refrigerate the cake for a few hours and that moist pudding starts to soak into those layers and Mmmm, it's delicious. We also went to a movie tonight, which is something we haven't done for about a year and a half. Quite enjoyable. Hope your day was too!

*I usually don't care for processed ingredients, but I've tried this with real whipped cream and I prefer the less rich, light and fluffy taste that the Cool Whip gives it. Homemade pudding would probably be better, but who has the time? Pin It

Not all are true. Everyone has their own way of thinking but I think they have to reconsider. I like to argue for the most accurate results.
