Ahhhh-Mazing Chocolate Cake!

First of all, I must credit the success of this creation to my friend and
inspiration, Monica. This is a recipe she first featured on her blog

This cake is delicious; however, it is not meant to rise very
high. Therefore, I doubled the recipe since my cake is for a special
young lady who is celebrating her 15th birthday this weekend

And for a cake that's going to stand center-stage
at her surprise party, height is a requirement!

Originally, this was to be a pink buttercream cake with green dots - because
those are the birthday girl's party colors. However, after I shared the instant
Fudge Frosting recipe Monica posted, well, party-girl's mom was hooked!

So I put the beautiful buttercream between my four layers!

And, used it to dot the cake!

I sure hope the Birthday girl loves her cake...

As much as our sweet Bing does!
Thanks, Monica. I couldn't have done this without you!


  1. Looks like Bing approves! And so do I! Go you!!!

    Your cake is stunning and let me tell you how PERFECT your frosting job is. You are amazing my friend.

    I can only imagine how wonderful that cake is. That is my favorite cake, and frosting recipes. Add some strawberries on the side and I bet it's heaven. oh yum!

    I'm sure the birthday girl will be quite pleased.

  2. OMGoodness!!!!
    I think I'm gonna FAINT!!!!
    That is AMAZING!
    Please do tell me something YOU CAN"T DO!!!!!!!!

  3. Looks delicious and beautiful. You're such a sweet friend to put so much effort into the perfect cake.

  4. Holy. Crud. What a piece of artwork. Truly breathtaking. You constantly amaze me with your skills!!!

  5. Hi Janet!
    Wow... first of all... IT'S CHOCOLATE!!!
    secondly... the pink and green dots are fabulous!
    Super job... She must have loved it!! I know I would!

  6. I have to agree with Haden News you are a very sweet friend!! The cake tasted as amazing as it looked! Hannah was very pleased and so was everyone else. I already have a request for a yellow cake with the same fudge icing. Oh and Paul says he wants a Harley Davidson cake lol I told him he would have to settle for a Harley cake topper! And the cookies were great too!
