Foodie Friday -- Birthday cake anyone?

As I mentioned here, it was E's birthday this week.  Every year I let the kids decide what type of birthday cake they want.  At first it was pretty easy, but as they have gotten older, their cake requests have gotten more challenging.  E wanted a Barbie Mariposa (butterfly) cake

I used 2 cake mixes in a large pan that my neighbor gave me.  She said it could hold 2 mixes, but I had never tried it before.  As it was baking it started rising higher and higher and I started panicking.  I thought for sure it was going to spill out of the pan and all over my oven.  It got right up to the tippy top and even a little higher, but never did overflow.  Thankgoodness!!!

And here is the finished cake!

Today is my hubby's birthday, and I have big plans for his cake.  Check back next friday for the pics!

I'm also linking this up these sites.  Go check them out and see what everyone else is up to.
