Guest blog brought to you by Tammy's sister Marina:
I love to bake. As you can tell by Tammy's posts, it's somewhat of a family trait. But the problem is Miguel has more of a savory tooth than a sweet tooth. So this year for his birthday I thought I would try to make something that he would enjoy eating as much as I would enjoy baking it. A friend of mine had the solution - a meat cake! It was perfect, I found a good recipe online, and got started.
6 lbs of meet, prepped and ready to bake
cooked and cooling, tops cut off
filled with gravy made from the drippings
(the recipe called for ketchup glaze but I thought gravy would look and taste better)
some boxed mashed potatoes and a little food coloring...
and ta-da - it's a cake!
Happy Birthday Miguel!
Guess what!? It's meat!
I knew it was a smashing success when Miguel tasted it and said, "this is the best cake I've ever eaten."
