A Cake For My Bro-In-Law

pretty party cake, buttercream!
party time birthday cake!
my niece kensie! 8 weeks old!

My bro-in-law Gerald is a real cool dude. We even call him the "Dogfather" for his love of bringing friends, family and food together and having a great time. He just celebrated his birthday and my sis ordered a cake to help in the festivities! This is what I call my Kensie Strawberry recipe-- vanilla buttermilk cake filled with my mom's homemade strawberry jam, and vanilla buttercream! I really love simple and delicious buttercream cakes, and this one turned out so cute! I made a matching blue polka dot cake board and birthday flag too. Here's a pic of little baby Kensie too, she's saying "Happy Birthday Daddy!"

Thanks Lynds for the cake...I loved it and am eating the last piece tonight! (I had to show restraint yesterday!, as yesterday was filled with much fun, food and family!) Thanks again, I had a great birthday!

From Gerald (your bro n law)

I specifically like the idea that the color perfectly fits his son (your nephew) is like celebrating his being a father as one as well.
