Garth Brooks Does Something He’s Never Done Before
Garth Brooks is asked all the time if there are things in his life and career that he’s never done before. For his wife Trisha Yearwood’s birthday today (9/19), he did one of those things.
Garth gushed on Studio G last night (9/18), “I made a cake.” He admitted that he wasn’t feeling confident about the outcome. The reason came to light when Trisha arrived a little while later and discovered the cake in the kitchen.
Brooks said, “Here’s the confession. The first layer came out great.” He then explained that he had a little trouble getting the second layer out of the cake pan. Garth continued, “I thought, ‘Well, just let it sit and go ice the first layer.’ And then it started to come loose! I went, ‘All right!’ So then I’m standing there with it in my hand, but I haven’t iced the first one yet. So I’ve got it in one hand, trying to ice with the other one, and it starts to fall apart. It was horrible!”
Trisha revealed Garth wasn’t exactly smooth in executing his plan. She said, “Late last night, I get this, ‘Hey, if a fella, a friend of mine was going to be baking a cake, and the recipe called for a square pan, but I want to put it in a round pan – my friend wanted to put it in a round pan'” The clues that someone had been baking also weren’t hard to spot when she got home. She noted, “I saw all the dirty dishes in the sink, so I know he made it.”
Brooks said that the cake was a “Triple Chocolate Cake Brownie, and I made a peanut butter frosting with chocolate chips.”

Garth has three grown daughters with his first wife, Sandy. Their father has been famous since before Taylor Mayne Pearl (30), August Anna (29), and Allie Colleen (26) were born. Garth’s youngest daughter has followed her father into country music.
When we chatted with Brooks recently, he told us about how he raised his three girls along with his first wife, Sandy, and now wife, Trisha Yearwood, and his thoughts on them having a celebrity parent.
He told us, “Here’s the deal, man, some of us are left-handed, some of us are right-handed, and I’ve had this discussion with them. ‘Look, you grew up the child of a celebrity, that’s it, but from that point on, it’s up to you.’ Right? But after a certain point, it’s up to you from there forward, and that’s where they’re at. ‘This is up to you, so you can blame all you want, but it’s up to you. And you have the power to change that however you want.'”
