I thought I would kick off the new week with a little birthday humor :)
celebrated his birthday. John loves when I bring sweet treats to work, so I thought
I would make a special cake for his birthday and bring it to work today.
I've known John for twenty plus years, so I knew he wouldn't be offended by the cake.
With his sweet tooth, he'll probably ask me to bring another one next week!
Happy Birthday John!
Older than Dirt Birthday Cake is super easy to make.
Just bake your favorite sheet cake (I made chocolate fudge), frost with vanilla
buttercream and top with Oreo cookies that you have pulsed in a food processor
until you have fine crumbs.
I made extra frosting so that I could tint some blue to write my special
birthday greeting for John.
Top with gummy worms and that's it.
Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
4 cups confectioners sugar
1 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2-3 T heavy cream
In the bowl of an stand mixer, cream together the butter and one cup of confectioners
sugar for 1 minute. Gradually add the remaining confectioners sugar one cup at a time.
Pour in heavy cream one tablespoon at a time and beat for another 5-7 minutes
until light and fluffy.
