Forever Young!

I have a pretty great brother-in-law, which is exactly why, when celebrating his birthday, I made a generous offer. I told him I would make any . . . any dessert that he wanted for this big birthday . . . this very big birthday!

This would, of course, include any type or kind of cake:

any variety of delicious pie, cobbler, or crisp:

any sort of pudding, trifle, or "delight":

It would, of course, even include the prima donna of all desserts, and my personal favorite:

Now, before I tell you what he chose, I have to tell you that this is a guy that still flies kites on the beach, can't wait for the 4th of July to set off fireworks, gets excited over all his nieces and nephews sporting events, and lights up the house at Christmas within an inch of its life. Definitely a kid at heart!

So, it should be no surprise that when offered the chance for any dessert he asked for:

Yes, Pillsbury "Funfetti" cake with Betty Crocker whipped butter cream frosting. The addition of sprinkles was mine because you can't do "funfetti" on the inside of the cake without doing confetti on the outside!

You've just got to love a guy that stays "forever young"!!


  1. Love the ribbon! Hysterical! Sounds like a cool guy!

  2. Well that would not have been my choice, but it sounds perfect for him! I have been away from blog world for awhile and am catching up. Love all your posts.

  3. oh yum...sensible man i say :)

  4. Greetings from Toronto, Canada. I've been enjoying your blog. Found it through a friend of a friend's blog. I'm totally with you on tiramisu being my absolute favourite dessert!
