I've had fun discovering so many blogs this week through the Ultimate Blog Party. I feel a party is never complete though unless there is cake. For those new to this blog, my toddler turned 3 at the end of February. The above picture is my attempt at making him a cow cake. The idea came from Family Fun. The cake itself can be any recipe so I choose to use my favorite chocolate cake recipe.
This recipe from Hershey's is delicious and very easy to make. Warning, the batter is extremely runny but it comes out perfect once it is cooked. Pretty much any time I want a chocolate cake, this is the recipe I use. I've never made the icing that comes with it but I've had it at a friend's house and it is very good.
