Hello Tuesday! Today while I was at Spin Class I was thinking about what recipe I should post today. I have cake on the brain, for one reason, my son Braden will be having his birthday party next weekend and I'm trying to decide if I should attempt the following cake to your left. Braden loves The Cat in the Hat. I originally was going to keep things simple for his 3rd birthday, until I came across the said cake. I know I can tackle the job because this is the cake I made for his 1st birthday.
It is only natural for me to post a cake recipe for today.
