Last week was my dear husband, the Big Bison’s, birthday and I made him a cake. I have no skillz whatsoever in cake decorating, but my daughter and I did what we could. Thought you might appreciate seeing our lowly homespun efforts.
Wanna see what we did?

A lot of laughter ensued. Because we’re just juvenile that way. 😀
If you can’t laugh with your family, what’s the point, right?
For the culinarily curious among us (Anne): The recipe we used was The Barefoot Contessa’s birthday cake. This was per my husband’s request. It has lemon zest in it, which makes it taste very fresh, despite the fact that it has way, way, way too much butter and sour cream in it. The frosting was just an almond buttercream, from my Southern Living cookbook, that I altered ever so slightly. Yummy. I prefer a slightly lighter cake, but I had to make the BB (either Birthday Boy or Big Bison, take your pick) happy.
The bison is foam. I bought him one year for my Bison’s stocking at Christmas.
