Romantic Surprises

I went to the grocery store and bought the ingredients to make my husband’s favorite cake.  But this cake was not going to be just a cake.  I baked a two layer cake and inserted a special note in between the layers.  I cut a piece from a manila folder and wrote, “You’re going to be a Daddy…I love you!” on it and put it in a perfect spot between the layers.

Then I made a swirl in the icing on the top of the cake so I would know exactly where to cut his piece.  After dinner, I asked if he would like a piece of cake and of course he said yes, so I cut “the piece” I had made just for him and gave it to him.  He took his first bite without a hitch.  Then he tried for the second, but he couldn’t quite get his fork to go through the cake.

He looked down at the cake trying to figure out why and pulled out the note.  He was so excited he began to cry.  Needless to say, yellow cake with buttercream icing has a whole new place in his heart!
