As you all know, Mike and are moving. A few days ago in the middle of frantically packing and trying to downsize by getting rid of nonessential household items, I remembered that it was nearly Mike’s Birthday!
It might sound silly, but his birthday marked an important milestone for us as a couple. We started dating in college three years ago and because we would go home on breaks between semesters, we always missed each other’s birthday.
So this year was a big deal. For the first time in our relationship I would be able to give Mike his birthday present in person. Naturally I wanted to surprise my new husband by making his cake instead of buying it, but since we are moving I decided to have a combination cake.
The next day while he was at work, I baked him a two layer red velvet cake from a mix and frosted it with store bought cream cheese frosting. I had already packed my cake stand and most of our dishes so I improvised by serving it to him on the back of a cutting board along with his gift and a card.
Later we went out with some friends which made Mike’s birthday the perfect way to finally get to celebrate together as a couple.
