Italian Cream Cake

"This was a triumph. I'm making a note here huge success. It's hard to overstate my satisfaction." That's for all my Portal friends out there :)
But seriously, today is my dad's birthday!!!  We had a great dinner out, and then had this cake from The Pioneer Woman called Billie's Italian Cream Cake.  I changed the walnuts to pecans, since I can't stand walnuts, and I find pecans, in baked goods, to be pretty good.  This cake is amazing.  So great.  I love the nuts and coconut in the frosting, and the yummy moist cake.  The calories on this are out of control, but man does it taste good.  My parents, Owen, Noah and I all gave the cake a perfect 10, and Aaron, the cake hater, gave it a 7 :).  The calories for 1/32 of the cake are 401.  Ouch!  Still, birthdays are special, and this was a great cake.  Thanks Pioneer Woman!!!

Tomorrow we're having some chicken and green beans.

  1. Aaron, I cannot believe you only gave this a 7. Even if you don't like cake, this was absolutely the best cake I have ever tasted. thanks, babe for making this for your dad. He did pay for it later, however. Mom H
