So my first request was from my mom that I make a cake for my parents 25th Wedding Anniversary. As I said in my welcome, my great-grandma was a baker. Really, she baked everything, but she owned a wedding cake business. My mom wanted me to use that recipe because she grew up eating it and had it for her wedding cake and absolutely loved it and remembered it being the best thing in the whole world… No pressure or anything. Well I’ll post more on that later, but for now, I will just tell you about today.
I was in the middle of baking my new nutella brownie bites (I’ll post those here soon) when my phone starts ringing. I went over and answered it- it was my brother. He asked me to bake him a specific cake (my famous made-from-scratch chocolate cake paired with my famous homemade chocolate buttercream frosting. Whenever I make this, it usually lasts for about one evening haha my mom calls it the dangerous cake- she eats it all). His friend from work (at Subway) is leaving tomorrow. He was pretty high-up on the scale as far as Subway jobs go, so this really upset many of the employees. They all love him. So Jordan (my brother) wanted me to make him a cake for a little going-away party they were having. My first order! I even get to deliver it! I’m so excited! Too bad I don’t get payed… I’m gonna go work on posting the cake recipe now!
