Birthday Cake

When we lived in West Virginia, my girl friend Joyce *the first person I ever knew to be GFCF* made our son the most unbelievable chocolate cake with chocolate icing. Mmm....I can taste it right now. :0)
That was before our youngest daughter was diagnosed with asthma and reflux-no chocolate anymore, and  we discovered that in general chocolate is not kind to our son's digestive track. :0(

Last Sunday was my birthday. I ordered a  yellow cake with chocolate icing. What I got was a 
Betty Crocker Gluten Free cake with homemade icing.
The reviews are mixed. My husband (who will eat just about anything) found the cake to be dry and tasteless. I found it to be on the dry side but not bad for GF. (My daughter did not know that I always dbl the vanilla for Betty Crocker cookie mix and most likely I would have here too.)

The kids liked it and that is all that matters! Our older daughter's bday is next month and little guys bday is the first of October. It is exciting to know that I will be able to take cupcakes to his classroom to celebrate. :0)

Did I mention in addition to cake we had coconut ice cream? According to my kids anything tastes good with ice cream! needless to say there were no cake leftovers!
