Well with Monday under our belts it's only four more days until the weekend, but who's counting lol?! I hope y'all had a wonderful day, mine was less then enjoyable and that is because I had a doctors appointment. I know what you're thinking "doctors aren't that bad" and it's true, he's super nice and very personable which makes him really approachable. My problem is the type of appointment it was, I had to get injections in my shoulders, neck, mid back, base of the skull, forehead, and temples :( I know it sounds like a lot and it is, but it helps my quality of life while waiting for surgery. I wouldn't wish this treatment on my worst enemy, that's because it is very very painful and I cannot wait for surgery so I never have to get them again :D My doctor speculates that I will be one of few patients he will never see again, and as much as we like each other we're okay with that.
So yesterday I told you today's post will be a recap of a friends birthday we celebrated while I was in Texas, and as the title of the post shows there will be a very unusual ingredient involved. I've talked about Dave before and would normally link you to his blog but he hasn't posted in eight months lol (finally someone worse than I haha jk), and he is also responsible for the cute little caricature of me specifically made for my blog. This last trip Dave asked if I would make his birthday cake for the celebration he invited us too, and of course I said yes but I told him I had a new recipe that I think he'd enjoy and not to mention possibly the best chocolate icing I have EVER had. I came across this recipe on Facebook (although I don't remember how) and as soon as I saw the title it had me intrigued, and now y'all ;)
4) Add the eggs, buttermilk, baking soda, and vanilla making sure to mix well.
5) Pour the mixture into a greased and floured 13"x9" pan and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from pan, cooling for about 10 minutes before frosting.
