This week, I’ll be recapping all of the fun we had celebrating Jackson’s birthday a couple of weeks ago! Up first, I thought I’d share a recipe for his addictively good birthday cake.
I actually let Emmie decide what kind of cake we’d have for his first birthday (because…well…he’s 1). She immediately said strawberry – the girl loves a good piece of strawberry cake! Since I’ve mentioned before that Jackson is addicted to bananas, I thought I’d step this strawberry cake up a notch.
The flavors blended perfectly. It was a really light cake that would be great for spring or summer! Trust me, it’s super easy and will make everyone think you worked on it all day. You’ve got to give this one a try!
Mix cake mix, eggs, butter, and 1 cup milk well in a large bowl. Pour into a 9×13″ Pyrex dish and bake according to package directions. Let cool.
Take the back of a wooden spoon and poke holes about every 2″ in the cake. Make sure the holes go all the way to the bottom of the dish.
