Larry surprised me with a custom made cupcake cake for my birthday weekend.
No offense to anyone that owns one of those cupcake shaped cake pans, but this one is way better. Maw was a waitress at one of the places we frequent. In the course of conversation, we found out she makes cakes. Here are some pictures. (Dangit, it the link just takes you to the facebook login page. If you are Larry's friend on facebook, look at her cake album.) Larry told her that I love cupcakes and specifically requested that she make me a cake in the shape of a giant cupcake. It is 4 or 5 layer cakes shaped into a cupcake. Red velvet with cream cheese icing.
The only thing better than being surprised with a cake is realizing that the cupcake liner is not just paper. It is parchment paper hiding a delicious chocolate shell. She did a great job.(Ignore the edge of the cake where it looks like somebody took their finger and swiped some icing off......I swear I don't know what happened there....)
