Though I loved the cloud puff chiffon cake that I tested last week, I decided to go for the dark and dense delicious chocolate cake that the Today Show showcased.
Oh . . .it was tasty and moist and tender too. . .
It was rich enough to need a scoop of Vanilla Icecream. . .
and whether you prefer a large glass of cold milk with your chocolate cake . . .
or a cup of strong black coffee. . .
Chocolate cake works.
Maybe not everyone loves chocolate cake. . .but if you do, I posted the recipe on the Mennonite Girls Can Cook blog. . .
The grandgirlie licked her fingers clean .. . and I think I'll be making her this cake again.
Have a wonderful day my friends.
Soooo cute! I'm sorry I missed it, or at least missed seeing the party princess try her first bites of it! I hope you all enjoyed yourselves at the party- can't wait to see pictures!ReplyDelete
The cake turned out perfect didn't it? Lil' Miss will treasure that picture for ever, and maybe one day a Tinkerbell and Peter Pan will sit atop her wedding cake. You never know...ReplyDelete
Your cake is beautiful!!!! I'm sure it was a fun party. I discovered, after marrying my husband, that not all people like chocolate -- how strange is that?!ReplyDelete
That is one pretty cake Lovella! Just what a little girl loves!!ReplyDelete
Oh so pretty! I'll have to check for whom this wonderful creation was baked.ReplyDelete

What a fabulous cake Lovella! Love it! You will have to make it again...ReplyDelete
Happy Birthday to her! I am so pleased to know that you are taking your responsibilities as a grandma seriously and introducing chocolate at the proper time and in adequate amounts. Remember maxim #4: A girl needs her chocolate!ReplyDelete
Only for a princess. Looks like fun.ReplyDelete
Chocolate has always been my favorite.
Happy Birthday to the little Princess! Thanks for sharing the cake with us too! =)It's beautiful!ReplyDelete
A work of art, Lovella! But let me warn you...you will be making special cakes for that special girl for every special occasion from now until forever. And your little farmhand will soon be putting in his requests as well. And soon there will be more princesses and farmhands...and you will be making many beautiful cakes...and posting all the recipes right here for us to see. It's all good!ReplyDelete

Well done Lovella! I can feel the love that went it every rosebud squeezed onto that cake! I've done this kind of cake decorating before too and I might have to get that icing recipe from you as my hand nearly fell off it was so cramped by the time I was done! Lol!ReplyDelete
