Zebra Print w/ Pink Bow

I not only learned a couple new tricks while making this cake but I got to experiment with a new recipe combination: dark chocolate cake with raspberry filling and cream cheese frosting.  All made from scratch of course! :) Cake was a hit and went fast! 

Fancy Tuxedo Birthday Cake

It's been a while since I have posted anything, let alone made anything but I hope that will change soon. I have an itch to experiment with some recipes and techniques! I started with a new vanilla cake recipe that I think is super moist and flavorful....yuuummm!!! A friend's daughter asked me to make a tuxedo cake for her boyfriend's 23rd birthday (she must be throwing him some fancy shindig of a party! lol). "Happy Birthday, Chris!"
