So, it’s my dad’s birthday today and I want to make a dessert for him. First I thought about making my famous Frozen Key Lime Pie that he loves so much, but I don’t have the readymade graham cracker crust nor graham crackers to make it and I’m a little low on the lime juice. I also thought about making a Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting. He really liked it when he tried it as a cupcake. But I don’t know if I have everything! See, my big obstacle here is the fact that I have to work with what I have here. I have no way of getting to the store to pick up more stuff so I have to improvise. Then I remembered: Super Cook! Super Cook is this great website that you put in all the stuff you have in your kitchen and pantry as far as ingredients, and then they give you all the recipes you can make with the stuff you already have. So no more searching for ingredients at the last minute, it’s all about what you have right now. Let’s see what desserts I can make for him…
So, apparently I CAN make a red velvet cake, judging by the dozens of different recipes that came up when I searched ‘cake’ among my dessert possibilities. I am one happy camper, and I’m sure dad will be, too.
Oh, and if you’re wondering, my dad turns 49 today. He’s the greatest man I’ve ever known and he has never let a day go by without letting my mom, my sister and I know we’re his reason for living.
*I’ll see if I can post some pictures of the cake once I’m done 😉
