One Heck Of A Hostess!

For Chad's birthday yesterday, I decided to surprise him with a cake.

And a few cupcakes.


Needless to say, we needed a HUGE glass of milk to go with it.

Curt, Holly, and Tucker came over for some cake and fun.  Karli was VERY excited to help Tucker jump in her jumperoo.  A little too excited ... she made him cry.  What can we say, Karli is intense!

I am very impressed by that cake. Did you make it?

Emily - I found the recipe at this site:

http://bakingbites.com/2007/09/devils-food-cupcakes-with-vanilla-cream-filling/

For the most part, I really liked the recipe. The cake was pretty yummy, but the filling didn't come out as fluffy as I would have liked. Probably user error, but it was still delicious. I just made the giant cake by stacking four 9 inch cakes on top of one another and then carving them down at the end. I just followed the recipe for the cupcakes, and I actually liked those better than the cake. Delicious!
