We have been celebrating a lot around here. There are four birthdays in 4 months so cake is abundant!
We pretty much agree that chocolate is the best but, it’s always my husband who requests chocolate butter cream frosting for his birthday cake.
This recipe is perfect for cake and even cupcakes. If there is no reason to celebrate (why do you even need a reason to make cake in the first place!) this would be perfect sandwiches between to graham crackers!
