A Birthday and Cake!


A Birthday and Cake!
I don’t know how it is that my second son is 11, now. It seems like that shouldn’t be possible, but it is.

This year for his birthday, I made this cake that I found on Smitten Kitchen’s blog.

Oh. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake. It was so delicious.

If you have someone in your family who likes chocolate and peanut butter, you must, MUST make this cake for him. Deb, of Smitten Kitchen, offers wonderful instructions and tips that really helped me. This is good since making cakes isn’t my forte. Another bonus about this cake is that all of the ingredients are easy to come by. In fact, if you wanted, you could buy every single ingredient at Aldi — except for the waxed paper you need for pan prep.

Chocolate Sour Cream Cake + Peanut Butter Frosting + Chocolate Peanut Butter Glaze = Yummola.

He has requested this cake for his next birthday and has talked his older brother into requesting it for his next birthday, as well.

He thinks ahead, that one. I just adore him, precious boy. What would I do without him?
