Buttercream overload.

Brock is having a great birthday. He said it's great because there is no school, he got new games for the Wii and he got Ryke's cake with buttercream frosting and Bavarian cream filling. Ok. Just a few calories in a slice of that cake. But that's what birthdays are for, right? A little indulgence is a wonderful thing when it's done with moderation.
These pictures are for my mom and dad. They've had Ryke's cake with us before and I just had to give them a 'taste' of what they're missing. It really is that delicious! And tomorrow we'll have leftovers for breakfast. It's all about moderation around here. =) Yum!


Anonymous said... I can't find a buttercream recipe that is good. I've searched high and low and still have not found one that seems that great. Would you consider posting your recipe?..Didn't know if you shared recipes or not. And I'm so glad Brock is having a great day! My kids had a great day home as well!

Happy Birthday Brock! You're children look so happy! Even Wyndham looks like she is feeling better and smiling again! YAY! Someday maybe I will drive to your house and you can make me that scrumptious looking cake and then I will bring it back to West Virginia with me!!! I am glad your happy household is back to happiness!

mmm ryke's cake!! always a treat! :-) happy birthday, brock!

i thought i would leave a comment since i occasionally stop in to see how your family is doing.

we were at the bridge when you and your husband shared your testimony and your daughter's story last year and we were there again a few weeks ago when you shared the news of your pregnancy and update on Wyndham. (we are related to the rexford gang and my husband and i helped lead worship that morning.) i wanted to introduce myself then but didn't catch you guys after the service.

anyway, thought it was about time to "introduce" myself since i keep checking back to your site! :-)

praying for your family-

You also wish Brok the Italy.
Dear Jody, writes you from the italy, excuse for my terrible English.
I have known your blog, through an it befriends virtual. your blog has signalled Me, because it unites us a great pain. A child's death.
My 8 year-old baby is dead last year for a fulminating pneumonia. I find in you a great strength, from which I inspire me. Despite all the things that have happened you, you have an unbelievable strength. A great embrace Sabrina

PS - is Ryke's the name of a bakery where you live? I just can't stop thinking about Brock's cake!!!

Jody said...

Yes. Ryke's is the name of the bakery where we got Brock's cake. {You pronounce it Ryke' Bikes.} The Bavarican creme filling is my favorite part of the cake. Mmmmmm.
