My dh’s chocolate mousse cake

Last Sunday was my dh’s birthday.  It was  the big 40 for him.  We went out the night b/f for his b-day dinner so he wanted dinner at home on the actual day.  I made a simple roast beef dinner with fried potatoes, a mixed green salad wth avocados,sauteed shallos and button mushrooms, and scallops with  a simple concoction of vinaigrette dressing(olive oil, sherry wine vinegar,bacon, garlic, mustard and salt/ pepper.  I also made  last minute jumbo shrimp scampi(his mom and bro  called and was stopping by on the way home from Malacca, so I asked them to stay for dinner and cake).  My mother-in-law does not eat beef.  I made dh a chocolate mousse cake.  It turned out alright.  Everyone loved it.  I made a regular round one and a small one with brandy.  I used a recipe from Peggy’s Baking Corner  with some modifications.  http://whatscookingamerica.net/Cake/ChocMousCake.htm .

Another cake to have with the family

Justin’s birthday is today.  He had a birthday party at kindergarten last Fri so he had some birthday cake with classmates and another one with the family.  It was Spiderman themed so for school I made a small cake for blowing candles and small cupcakes for the kids.  I had trouble drawing a Spiderman.  I need more practice working with frosting too.  It didn’t help that the kids were always poking at the finished cake.  For Justin’s cakes, I used Martha Stewart’s orange cake recipe.  This recipe never fails.  It always turns out well.  I’ve made this cake a few times before.  http://www.marthastewart.com/recipe/polka-dot-birthday-cake?autonomy_kw=polka%20dot%20cake
