Birthday Cake

This makes the second time this week that I'm going to bring up food. Seems like that's all I see on blogs and Pinterest these days. Or maybe it's just because I'm on a low carb diet. LOL! I'm hanging in there and hoping this won't go on til Christmas!


Our daughter Jenny just celebrated her 18th birthday earlier this month. She didn't want a big party this year, but wanted her daddy to make her a strawberry whipped cream cake with some blueberries on top. I just have to show it to you because it was so beautiful!

Look at all those candles! Our baby is all grown up!

We went out for a nice dinner, then came home for dessert.  This cake is one of our family favorites!

Make a wish!

Here's what the inside of the cake looked like. Yum! I saved my carbs for dessert on that day. It was totally worth it!

This is a really easy cake to make, although if I made it, it wouldn't look nearly as nice! Y'all know Mr. Fanatic used to be a chef and spent some time as a pastry chef, don't you? 

To make this cake you need: a yellow cake mix, then whip up some heavy cream(add powdered sugar & vanilla), cut up some strawberries and put it all together.

Does your family have a favorite cake that gets requested for a birthday or  special occasion? 
Would love to hear all about it.


 We usually just wing it when we make our whipped cream, but here's a recipe for making whipped cream at
