My new favorite thing… making cake with beer. It’s so easy!
As you may remember, we are going to Key West tomorrow for Deena’s birthday celebration. The theme is “Mi Quince Double!” My Double 15 :) I thought the theme was awesome. This weekend will include mustaches, sombreros, Mexican Beer, and Tequila. I was so excited until I heard the word Tequila. I’m not going to lie… I’m a little scared!
To continue the Mexican theme, I decided to make Deena a cake. You can’t have a birthday without cake, and I can’t make a cake without beer!
(Please excuse the ugly pan. I didn’t want to misplace one of my good ones.)
I got the idea for my cake from this picture.
My original plan was to make the cake with Margarita Mix. As I was making dinner last night, I found this in our refrigerator.
Huck found this in our cooler after the Easter Beach Party. I’m not really sure how it ended up in our cooler. Huck thought it was a joke.
I’m not going to lie, the Bud Light Lime Lime-A-Rita is HORRIBLE! It’s way to sweet for my liking. I couldn’t imagine drinking a glass of this stuff. I almost didn’t add it to my cake mix but remembered Margarita mix is really sweet too. Honestly, it taste like Margarita mix without the alcohol. The bottle said it was “Flavored Ale”.
I went for it, and I’m really glad I did. The lime flavor really comes through. I made myself a small sample to make sure it tasted OK. I don’t want to serve bad cake. SO GOOD!
Well that’s it for today. I have a few things to do before bed. My plan is to be in bed early. Not sure if it will happen.
You can follow me on Instagram to see how our trip is going… If I can remember
how to post pictures. Today, I posted a picture of my photography setup. It looks much different than the view you see in this pictures.
I’ll see you guys in a few days.
