Oh My! It is August 31st and the last day for me to get this challenge completed ๐Ÿ˜ฌ. Nothing like waiting to the last minute๐Ÿ˜‰

I got incredibly lucky this month, because Sally chose an easy challenge for our August installment. If you have ever baked a cookie, and made frosting, then this is a fun and simple project! In fact, the hardest part of this challenge was choosing which of Sally’s flavor combinations to make. ๐Ÿ˜Š

My hubby’s birthday is also in August, so I chose flavors that I knew he would like. I made Sally’s Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, as written in the link above. The only difference was that I included white chocolate chips, along with the semi sweet ones, and made mine a 9 inch, 3 layer cake.

I also made her Chocolate Peanut Butter frosting, yum ๐Ÿ˜‹

After that, which was very little work, all I had to do was assembled and decorate!

I kept the decorations simple, as this was for my husband (who does not like sprinkles๐Ÿ˜ณ)

This flavor combo was a hit with the whole family, and it was a fun alternative to the standard ice cream cake he usually requests for his birthday.

Next month’s challenge involves choux pastry! So I will have to be on top of my game in ย September! ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿณ

  1. Drooling! My SIL just made my middle son a chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting for his August birthday. I’m usually not a fan of chocolate cake (only brownies), it was so good. You can’t go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate. Happy Belated birthday to your husband! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Where are you traveling right now? I want to send you a little something but I’m wondering if it is a good time. You might not be home to receive your parcel… I had so much fun while you were in Montreal. Miss you already! xoxo

    • Hi Dom! I am in Redmond right now, but leaving for Tucson on the 27th for six weeks. ๐Ÿ˜Š. My son will be here at the house, and can pick it up for me-but you don’t have to send me a thing!! You were such an amazing and gracious host!

      • Thanks for you kind words. It was such a pleasure to have you, Linda and Darren in my home town. I will cherish the memorable memories of the special moments we spent together. I really want to send you this little thing … It’s yours already anyway. ๐Ÿ’• Be safe, keep well.
