So I like to have a little fun every year to pick the cake design I want to celebrate my husband's birthday. There seems to be a running theme of food made of cake - i.e. sushi cake, a enchilada cake, (batman not so food) and this year with a pancake cake. He really loves making me pancakes in the morning, he used to put in strange concoctions like crystal lite, cocoa powder or orange juice. I didn't care for that much, this time it was time for me to make the pancakes for him! Nothing too strange here though - real maple cake with caramel buttercream.
