    Hi Kevin, What a wonderful memory you’ll have of you and Aster mixing up a chocolate cake before Mommy got home! Too bad someone didn’t get pics, but that’s ok. Good thing thing you got the “mess”cleaned up before Rachel got home(LOL). It’s called “Live and learn”. The three of you have many wonderful adventures ahead of you! Be blessed as you all make the journey together. Blessings to you, Rachel, and Aster! PS: Love the pic of Aster on her tryke. Yes, time moves on.

    This cake sounds amazing, I am just sad I am unable to have it. I am unable to consume coffee. It does not agree with my heart. …lol. I also had gastric bypass a few years back and still find that soda of any kind makes my tummy feel yucky. So am a bit worried as to what it would do in a cake. If anyone knows I would love to hear from you.
    Your young one is beautiful and the memories your building with her are amazing. Keep up the wonderful things dad!!! My girls are grown and I sure miss having little ones. I love this news letter, so thanks for the time you put into it!

    The cake and frosting sound delicious! I didn’t start drinking coffee until I was in my 40s, but now I love it. I can even drink it with just cream and Stevia. I used to absolutely, positively have to have flavored creamer to disguise the coffee taste, though that is still my preferred way of drinking it. I love mocha-flavored desserts, too. I will have to try that one.

    I loved the picture of Aster on her trike. She is such a cutie! You’re right; children grow up way too quickly! Keep enjoying all of these precious moments with your little one.

    I made the cake but I had to bake it for 45 minutes and it wasn’t completely done. Are the liquid measurements wrong?i used a disposable aluminum pan so it should have baked properly. ???????????

    Sunshine how about if you used Decaffeinated instant coffee in the cake & frosting? I am thinking it is the caffeine that does not agree with your heart. just an idea 🙂
