Birthday Weekend… Part III

You didn’t think I would forget the cake did you?

I made magic chocolate cake for the humans, and I made a small banana cake for ‘little bit‘. As I stated in an earlier post, when the birthday person gets cake, everyone gets cake! 🙂

For the chocolate frosting, I used 2 Tbsp. of water to get the consistency pictured. It was more like the consistency of tub frosting than when I made the frosting last time. 🙂

For the small banana cake, I used the recipe for Banana Cake, Mine, ALL MINE! divided it by 4, then reduced the sugar by another 1/2, and omitted the nuts.

  4. Allow to cool 10 minutes, then remove from springform pan and place on cooling rack until completely cooled.
