J’s 25th Birthday Cake – Hershey’s Deep Dark Chocolate Cake October 21, 2011

Kathryn says: Mom and I teamed up to make J a decadent chocolate cake for her 25th birthday. J picked out this Hershey’s Deep Dark Chocolate Cake and One-Bowl Buttercream Frosting recipe from her Hershey’s Best-Loved Recipes cookbook. We used Smart Balance whipped buttery spread instead of butter. Telling of how much J loves cooking, she offered to help make it, but we decided she could let us do the work for her special day.

She opened gifts first, and she was surprised and excited to find the TSOK T-shirt I made her, which has our dot com domain name on it.

Mom and I iced the cake just minutes before J cut into it so that it would be fresh. We topped it with rainbow sprinkles.

Cake before the candles. Made with love

We added festive candles, and gathered together to sing and eat.

We enjoyed the moist, spongy dark cake and the rich, oh-so-sweet-and-creamy milk chocolate icing on top.

J and I washed the delicious dessert down with non-fat milk in martini glasses.

Keepin' it classy

    You guys should create a Fan page on Facebook for your blog. I have seen other bloggers do this. That way you have one place where you can post links to new posts, feature favorite posts, etc. People can “Like” it, invite others to “Like it” and through networks you could get more followers. I have found several running/nutrition/triathlon blogs this way. Just a thought 🙂 Happy Birthday Jamie and the cake looked DELICIOUS!
