So I brought this cake to my mother in law's for mother's day. Everyone ohhed and ahhed over it and then we ate it. I was sitting next to the youngest in our family, my hubby's nephew who will be 4 this August. I noticed he wasn't saying much while he was eating which is odd because he's usually very talkative.

Well he finishes his cake, scrapes as much frosting as he can off his plate, then pronounces in a very loud voice "This cake is SOOOO GOOD!!!!" Seriously the best compliment I've ever gotten!

Here's a pic of the cake I brought over. It was a strawberry cake with chocolate frosting.

Yep, 4 year olds are painfully honest, so your cake HAD to taste awesome! (Plus it was beautiful!) Congratulations!

My favorite compliments are the ones from my 3-year-old granddaughter! Beautiful cake by the way!

very beautiful. Kids are the best,!! My 3 yo grandson asked me yesterday if I brought cake [he calls me grandmacake] when I went to visit them. We went to lunch with them to Chili's and I said no, "I didn't have time to make one yesterday" so his mom said that he could get some at Chili's for dessert, but he said he wanted grandmacakes, cake!!!

That is so sweet! Children are my best (and sometimes worst icon_biggrin.gif) critics. Their comments are so sincere. My 5 year old niece was helping her other aunt (BIL's sister) make cupcakes with her cousin one day. My sister told me that every time they did something, mixing batter, icing, etc., she kept on saying "If my Aunt Mia were here, she can do this.." icon_biggrin.gif

And it's beautiful to boot!

Yah, kids that age are going to be honest about how something tastes. My almost 5 year old will tell me, "I like that smell" when I'm cooking something he likes. If I give (or offer) something he doesn't like, he very politely says, "I think I'm going to need something a little better than that." icon_lol.gif

That's what I figured, if you can make something that a four year old likes, just about everyone else will like it too!

He's so sweet, totally made my day!
