Birthday Cake

It’s Joel’s birthday today so I made his traditional birthday cake — angel food with that “special” frosting. The first time I made it, five years ago, he told me his mom made the PERFECT frosting for the cake and that’s what he wanted. So, being the good wife and not willing to screw it up with my own interpretation of “perfect” frosting, I called my mother-in-law and explained the situation. She laughed and said I’d love the recipe. I got out my pen and paper and wrote down the first ingredient: Cool Whip. And then I waited for her to think through the rest.

“Hello? Are you still there?”

“Yes. That’s it. Cool Whip. Nothing else.”

Yes! This is one I can handle. The funny thing is, Joel thinks it’s quite complicated and somehow I’ve mastered it, just like his mom used to make! Oh, I’m amazing.

Happy Birthday!
