Celebrating 2 Years With a PB&J Sandwich Cake & Giveaway!

Yes, it’s a CAKE!

That seriously looks like a real peanut butter and jelly sandwich, doesn’t it? No kidding, within 1 minute of seeing Sneh’s Cakewich (that’s what this is called) on Cook Republic, I had one-click ordered a Cakewich pan from Amazon. This blog turns 2 years old today and I’m celebrating with a fun, toddler-approved cake (at least the toddlers who live in my house loved it)!

As cute as it is, this cake tastes even better. In fact, I delighted in this pound cake as much as with the Meyer Lemon Whipping Cream Pound Cake I raved about a few weeks ago (yes, it’s been a pound cake kind of month). The cake itself is very moist and flavorful – even after five days at room temperature on my kitchen island – and that frosting is like peanut butter’s richer, sweeter, fluffier cousin. It’s definitely more than a gimmick, this cake is legit. If you’d like to see how I made this massive cake sandwich, check out today’s post on my other blog, Panini Happy.

    I have to say that your cake here is the most unusual! (Is that cheating? It’s true, though…) My daughter has requested a Milles Feuilles crepe cake for her 5th birthday, so that may be the most unusual cake I’ll have seen…once I make it! 😉 I can’t wait to see what she requests when she turns 15!
