i had the pleasure of babysitting my two nephews a few weekends ago.
it was so much fun! they are brothers and 7 years a part, it is funny to see how they interact - Aiden the youngest, he's 3 emulates everything his big brother Xavier does.
we went on a nice long hike, every rock Xavier climb, every down tree he jumped his little brother was right behind him making his way over and onto the trees and rocks....with a little help from his auntie of course.
so as a treat i decided to bake them a cake - a simple classic vanilla cake frosted blue with lots of fun sprinkles...not only did we enjoy cake but we also made popcorn on the stove and Xavier made his first, completely from scratch pizza - dough and all! i couldn't be more proud.
the cake is super simple, easy to whip up in the morning to enjoy that very same afternoon.
when it comes to cakes i definitely prefer vanilla.
growing up i never requested chocolate cake for my birthday and whenever chocolate cake was served at other birthday parties i always opted for a double helping of ice cream
