HAPPY BIRTHDAY - DINNER CAKE
I came across the idea of making a meat loaf and mashed potato cake on MARTHA'S website and when I was trying to figure out what to make for my youngest daughters birthday dinner I thought this would be perfect. We didn't do a real birthday cake because her birthday fell on a school night. This was decided only because sugar and set bed times do not go together with my girls. My eldest daughter was looking at the cake with shock and horror, it was too funny!

(It was hard to get a good photo while trying to get this to the table without hurting anyone - the cake weighed in at well over 4 pounds)
