On my husband's side of the family, german chocolate cake is one of the boys favorite dessert. But forget the cake--the frosting is where it's at. And there are always some huge spoon wars going on in that frosting bowl. Dad usually wins--he's got the age and ability to take the lead while the grown boys use the sneak attack method, coming up on either side of Dad and dipping the spoon in from over Dad's shoulders. Three grown men together act like a pack of rabid frosting eating wolves.
It seriously is sad that it takes quadruple the frosting to frost one 9x13 inch cake. So I decided to end the frosting wars once and for all. This time I was going for cookies. Ha!
I piled double the amount of frosting on these gluten free german chocolate cake cookies and still the same thing happened. The boys ate one or two cookies raving how good they were but then scooped the frosting off the cookies leaving the cookie behind. The rest of the family ate the entire cookie like normal people do, never once guessing that it was gluten free but still raving about it how good they were.
I don't think I will ever win this war. Ever.
Please tell me, what is one family battle that you never win?
