Last week was Princess Pat’s 7th birthday. It is hard to believe that so much time has passed since her arrival. She has brought such a sweetness to our rough and tumble household. I always used to say that I’d ruin a girl, so I had to have sons, but maybe Someone knew better.This year for her birthday, she wanted a chocolate cake. She didn’t want just any chocolate cake, she wanted a three layer cake. Well, I only have two cake pans that are the same size, so I decided to slice each layer in half and go for a four layer cake. She was so excited. I was more excited that she wanted a grown up cake and that I wouldn’t have to try to fake fancy decorating skills that I do not possess. Yay!This was what my husband refers to as a chocolate bomb. It was rich and tasty and required at least one glass of milk to go with it. I got the recipe for both the cake and frosting from Hersheys.com. I have had a lot of good luck with their recipes and thought you might like to know that, too, just in case you hadn’t tried any. I doubled the frosting recipe to have enough for all of the layers. I made it the day before the birthday and had to stop one of my sons from taking a spoon and eating frosting straight from the bowl after school.
You can find the recipe HERE. I don’t usually post without a recipe, but I didn’t change it at all, so I won’t feel badly if you leave my site and go over there. Don’t be mad that the recipe isn’t here. It’s a copyright thing.
