Want some Valentine kisses? Try this chocolate cake on your sweetie or family on Valentine's Day and get ready for the thank you kisses. I am talking yummo here! This is soooo good and the icing taste like a Milky Way bar. Better hide a piece because it will be gone before you know it. (I've been know to hide things....hehe) And don't you just love that vintage rose cake carrier? That was one of my finds recently and you can find it here. If you are making this cake for a friend or a special function what a fun way to carry it. If you have a pink shabby kitcen this cake saver is a must.
Milky Way Cake
Purchase one "Swiss Chocolate" cake mix. (I couldn't find Swiss so I got German Chocolate) Mix with 1-1/2 cups water, 1/2 cup oil, and 4 eggs. Bake according to package directions. I always put the baked layers in the freezer for a while because it makes frosting the cake so much easier. Also, this cake is very pretty when the two layers are cut into 4 layers.
one 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese
one cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
12 oz. carton cool whip
2/3 bag milk chocolate chips, melted
1/2 cup pecans
Cream the cream cheese and sugars; add remaining ingredients except the pecans and blend. Frost cake and top with pecans.
I received an award last week from Pegs Life In The Button Jar. Don't you just love that name? Peg claims to be a button floozy. LOL. Love that! I received this award once before so I am doubly grateful to receive it again. It stands for bloggers who show great attitude and gratitude. Thank you Peg for thinking of me and I pass this on to all my blogger friends. They all have great attitude and gratitude I think. And speakng of gratitude I will be filled with it if you all will think of me on Thursday. Remember I told you I had an emergency dental problem on Christmas Day while we were away and we had to find a dentist who would see me. We did and he took very good care of me until our return to Virginia. Well tomorrow I am to have some surgery to fix the problem. Now going to the dentist is probably one of my least favorite things to do, so to say the least I am not looking forward to this procedure. I am a big whimp. The surgeon gave me three happy pills to take so I should be pretty relaxed on the way. Maybe I'll even sing for Bobby G. Nah!!!....don't think so. Anyway..... I'll see you a few days after that.
