I snagged this topic from Vincent Ehindero’s blog “What was your first cooking experience
Mine was when I was 8 and had been given the Better Crocker’s Cookbook for Boys and Girls.
I oohed and aahed at all of the recipes as I browsed through it and came across the Igloo Cake. I could do this one! I could do it for my brother’s fifth birthday. It didn’t matter that his birthday was in August, and on a hot sunny day, the igloo cake seemed perfect.
My mom helped me bake the two round layer cakes and cut them in half. We placed them on their ends to create the the igloo shape. Then we frosted it with white frosting (homemade of course) and then I used a spoon to chocolate syrup on to make the lines, however, my lines were anything but straight. But my brother was happy that I made a cake just for him and I was proud that I could almost do it all myself.
