"Mr. Ed" and I are helping our son celebrate his 40th birthday!
Our sons favorite cake is plain and simple. . .
yellow cake with milk chocolate frosting.
Since we will be celebrating a milestone of 40 years,
"Mr. Ed" and I embellished the frosting with peanut butter cups!
Wanting to make this birthday a bit more special for our son,
we decided to make him his favorite cake into cupcakes.
At the grocers to pick up the ingredients,
"Mr. Ed" and I found these over~sized parchment paper
cupcake liners. . .perfect for my over~sized muffin pan!
So~o~o. . .
while it hailed, thundered, lightening,
rained and the wind howled,
"Mr. Ed" and I made a single layer cake
and six over~size cupcakes.

Once the cake and cupcakes were cooled,
I iced them with milk chocolate frosting. . .right from the can!
I cut two regular size peanut butter cups into half,
then in half again to make the triangles for the center.
I cut two more regular size peanut butter cups
into 10 ~ 12 smaller pieces
and "Mr. Ed" dropped them randomly on the tops.

Six over~sized cupcakes. . .
and one single layer cake.
All it took was. . .
1 package of Yellow Cake Mix
1 can of Milk Chocolate Frosting
8 single regular size Peanut Butter Cups
to make celebrating 40 years. . .
a piece of cake!
Until next time. . .
