Yeah, I’m kinda caked out. No, we didn’t have cake one day after another. I did make this cake a couple of weeks ago and shared it with my son and his wife. Grumpy really liked this cake and my son Justin who isn’t a big chocolate eater liked it also. I believe the word from Kristina was that she liked her chocolate cake to be “more chocolate.” I think this would have been more chocolatey if I had put the chocolate chips in the cake, but I skipped that step.
This cake kind of reminded me of the Mayonnaise cake my nanny would make me for my birthday. I still think I like the Mayonnaise cake better, but the frosting is basically the same thing. I’m a little notstalgic at writing this because yesterday was the anniversary of my nanny’s death. I miss her so much and always will. She was one person I could count on to be there for me and love me no matter what – even if I was wrong. Nobody can replace her in my heart but I can only hope that she lives on in me and that my kids will remember me as I remember her.
