Luckily he wasn't hurt getting out, but now the crib is down to the lowest setting. Which of course I cannot reach. I think I will need to build a catapult to put Jakah to bed now. Or just get him a helmet and call it good.
Since today is my day off, and I like to bake on my day off I decided to make a grasshopper fudge cake. And to make it
Anyways onto the recipe! (which may or may not have been stolen and adapted from my awesomely free Betty Crocker calender)
Grasshopper Fudge Cake with Thin Mints
1 box of white cake mix
1 1/4 cups of water
1/3 cup of vegetable oil
2 teaspoons of mint extract
3 egg whites
12 dropps green food coloring
2 - 16 oz jars of hot fudge topping
1 - 8z container of cool whip (thawed)
5 drops of yellow food coloring
A few (however many you want) Andes creme de menthe thins (for the top)
Thin Mint cookies (however many you want)
Carefully spread hot fudge topping evenly over the cake. Sprinkle chopped up pieces of Thin Mints over the hot fudge.
In a medium bowl, mix together the cool whip, 1/2 teaspoon of mint extract, 9 drops of green food coloring and 5 drops of yellow food coloring (or again however much you want!) until blended.
Spread cool whip mixture over fudge and cookie topping.
