I had to share the cake I made Joe.
This time I used coconut oil instead of light olive oil in the cake. And topped it with fresh raspberries. Oh my goodness. It was pretty over the top delicious. And ridiculously crazy tall too.
Joe is the easiest and hardest person to choose a gift for. He's the type of guy that appreciates anything. The simplest little something extra really makes his day. But of course I want to do something awesome every now and then. Our budget is pretty tight these days so I was really trying to do this for not a lot of dough. Over the last month I pulled together this. In truth it started by accident. I picked little things up here and there and stashed them away. His favorite beer. Some favorite treats. Some new treats. A super cool t-shirt. Before I realized it, I had enough to fill a basket.
A Manly Basket
He loved it.
On another note….. tomorrow is February 29th. A bonus day that comes just once every four years. Are you doing something special? Something out of the ordinary?
I'm packing up some yummy treats and our drawing supplies and surprising the kids with a picnic lunch to our favorite outside place to visit. Good cheap fun, right?
Wishing you a bit of magic in your leap day tomorrow.
