Obviously this cake is chocolate - you can see all the chocolate cake crumbs in the icing! I remember I was having a really bad day when I was making this cake. The kids were pretty little and everyone was crying and fighting and I was trying to make a huge meal for my friend’s birthday, too. By the time I got to this cake, I didn’t care how it looked, just how it tasted!
My friend Rick comes over every year for his birthday in June, and has been doing so for years and years ever since I met him at the BBB when I was working in PR. Good thing he is a good enough friend that he just appreciates that we invite him over! Moms will understand! I had three little ones, food everywhere, and icing in my hair! I was lucky to even bake.
