Jack started off his summer at camp with our parish youth group. This was his first time on an airplane without one of us and the longest I'd ever gone without seeing him. Jack was more than ready to go...it was his mother who'd been dragging her feet about letting him fly off to this camp for years now.
Jack's mother needs help.

Guess what? He had a FANTASTIC time. And I'm pretty sure he wasn't counting down the days until his return like someone else I know.
Mr. E and I managed to survive! Empty nesters...for a week. Good practice for next year when Jack will be heading off to college.
*Let's not talk about that right now. Please pass the tissues.*
I wanted to welcome Jack home with something a little special. A cake! There's really nothing more special than a layer cake, right?
This one is a cookies and cream layer cake with Oreos in both the cake...
...and the frosting.
(Even pressed into the sides of the frosting.)
It's a beauty. The cake is light and moist with a fine crumb. The frosting is creamy and luscious. *sigh*
Cookies and Cream Layer Cake. You're going to love it.
Don't wait until your kids comes back from camp to make it. Maybe make it while they're at camp and eat it all yourself. ;) Hey...why didn't I think of that?
I'm sharing my recipe over at Imperial Sugar.
