In the Kitchen with Linda & Dinner Menu for 7

My new meal plan is going well. So far, the family isn’t complaining about it. lol

I made a birthday cake for my son’s 14th birthday party. He wanted half yellow, and half chocolate. I used two cake mixes. Yes, store bought mixes.

Instead of baking each of the cake mixes in a 13 x 9 inch pan, I used an 8 x 11.5 by 2 inch pan. It makes a nicer, thicker cake. I think they’ve downsized the mixes, because cake mixes come out thinner now than they used to. Anyway, I took the chocolate and yellow cake and placed them next to each other, and frosted as one cake.

You can kind of see the edges of the two different cakes. I used a glass pan that has rounded corners. If you used a metal cake pan with straight corners, the edges would blend together better. He enjoyed his cake, and the guests liked it, too.

Now…. to answer the question that I get asked about a hundred times a day……….What’s For Dinner?
