Fun with a box

So this is what Wyatt does with a box. He has had it for about a week now and won't let me recycle it. It has been a car, boat, a package to mail himself in and a bridge troll included. He loves these rings he got them on his cupcake at school.
Back and forth. Back and forth.
He is racing his brothers in these pics.
So tonight I made a Peanut butter cake. It was so yummy. I didn't have the powder sugar so I got chocolate frosting, from my sister, and used it instead it was still yummo.
Peanut Butter Sheet Cake

2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
2 eggs
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup sour cream
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup butter (1/2 c butter, 1/2 applesauce)
1 cup water


1/2 cup butter
2/3 cups creamy peanut butter
6 tablespoons milk
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat 400 degrees.

For cake:
Combine sugar and flour and set aside. In a medium bowl mix eggs, baking soda, and sour cream well. Set aside. In a small saucepan combine peanut butter, butter, and water. Bring to a boil. Add the boiled mixture to the flour mixture. Stir and add sour cream mixture. Pour into a 15x10 inch sheet/jellyroll type pan. Bake 20 minutes or until done. Test by inserting toothpick in the center of the cake.

Combine the butter, peanut butter, and milk in a saucepan. Bring to a boil stirring constantly. Add the powdered sugar and the vanilla. Mix well. It will be thick. Pour over cake while both are still warm. My frosting did drip over the sides a little, so pour and spread slowly. Let cool, slice, and serve.
