Do you remember the part where Pedro tells Napoleon that he's going to ask Summer (the most popular girl in school) to prom. Here's how the dialogue plays out:
Napoleon: "How the heck are you gonna do that?"
Pedro: "Build her a cake or something."
Ha! Perfect. Although that didn't work out too well for Pedro, it may have a better effect on your man.
So, BUILD him a cake--for no occasion at all. He'll think this is really something. After all, the way to a guy's heart is through his stomach!
There are only about a gazillion options for cakes you could make, but when in doubt, keep it simple! Don't slave away in the kitchen all day for something that will be eaten in 10 minutes!
Here's some inspiration: Cool Cakes
I'm not a big cake maker/decorator, but after seeing the idea for this, I couldn't resist. So, on went my apron, and out came the cake knife. I was up to my elbows in frosting, and ended up throwing out my first attempt. But, in the end, this was the result:
A Hershey Kiss Cake
(yes, I made this myself...but it's shameful compared to this one)

But, my husband loved it! He gave me a big hug and then we sat down and enjoyed some yummy cake together.
What kind of no-occassion cake would you make or have made in the past?
