Finally! A new recipe!

In honor of my birthday (which was yesterday :D) I decided it was high time to post a new recipe! And since it’s for my birthday and all, it’s not just any recipe… It’s The Best Chocolate Cake Recipe Ever!! This cake is sooo moist and rich and mouth-watering… Perfect for any occasion. :D

The BEST chocolate cake EVER - moist rich chocolaty - with amazing buttercream frosting

:D

But since it was *my* birthday… I didn’t have to make a cake. Kevin made one for me! :D Kevin took the day off work and I slept in… I woke up to the smell of fresh birthday cake! And a hubby with frosting all over his face! Hehe

Yes, he iced & decorated it himself! Doesn’t it look awesome? Much better than anything I’ve ever done.. LOL. We spent the rest of the day lounging around the house and eating cake. A very good birthday!! :D

Over Thanksgiving I got the chance to take some family pics… This of Kevin’s cousin is my new favorite:

Now that Thanksgiving and my birthday are over, it’s officially Christmas season!  To celebrate, I made a new Christmas blog theme from Crystal Wilkerson’s digital scrapbook kit, The Vintage Candy Cane Collection. Her kit includes an alpha made from one of my Free Scrapbook Fonts, My Own Topher! :)

Thanks for looking!! Are ya’ll liking the new seasonal themes? Or should I just pick one and stick with it? ;)

Amanda,
You know you have a great husband that loves you so much. Not to many Kevins around so take care of him. You two and the puppies are a family.

Awww, Happy Late Birthday! I’m a total sucker for Birthday Cake and everything else you mentioned, like changing your blog theme a million times and free fonts, heheheh! I’m glad that you had a nice birthday and wish that I had an ounce of the talent that you have! :D

Your new layout is superdooper cute!

And your cake looked delicious! I am definitely going to try out your recipe for our Christmas celebration when my Dad and his girlfriend come over. :)

BTW…I think updating your layouts seasonally (or when the mood strikes) helps keep your site fresh!

How did you make your icing so white? I was going to remake this cake for a work thing next week. But I also thought about making some chocolate icing and do a death by chocolate thing. I can’t decide! :)
