This post is kind of a dual-purpose post: firstly, I get to show off the yummy thing I have baked, and secondly I am going to blab a bit about how awesome my boyfriend is.
Erik really likes pumpkin spice flavoured things, so I made him a pumpkin spice cake! I just used some Penzey's pumpkin spice and some extra cinnamon to give the cake a rich spice flavour. The main frosting on the cake is a brown-butter frosting, which was delicious. I'm not sure why brown butter tastes so much better than regular butter, but it's pretty interesting. I used a tri-coloured buttercream frosting for the edge decoration.
About the guy: In the interest of my boyfriend, I'm not going to share too much detail about him. As you could tell by the cake, his name is Erik. He's Italian-American, a couple years older than me, and has a beard. He's the silliest person I know, and will do anything to get people around him to smile. He's also a genuinely kind and caring person, and makes me really happy.
I still haven't figured out if he reads this blog, but if you do babe, hope you had a great one :D
