Today is one of my best friend’s birthday. Happy birthday, beautiful Tori!
I love this girl dearly and have had lots of really great memories. Freshman year, she came home with my for Easter and we tried to make a cake. If you’ve noticed I’ve only made one cake on my blog and it was in a sheet form, not one of those fancy-shmancy big cakes. Well, it was a total fail and now has the name Fail Cake. The icing was sliding off in globs and the color was vile and we were on the floor laughing hysterically.
Anyway, Tori loves Reese’s Cups. So, I made some homemade ones. With crunchy peanut butter. And let me just tell you, people. These babies are good. Rich, but good.
Happy Birthday, Torbell. I hope it’s the best yet.
