Thursday Yummies

So I’d been wanting to bake a cake for a bit and when Sue sent me this link, I decided to give it a shot. Misha came over, we picked Noo up, put the younger kids down for a nap and got down to business. I had the usual white cake mix at home, so we added the required eggs, oil and water to make the batter and then added the colors – we went with blue, yellow, green, pink, red, yellow and orange. To make things a little more fun, we used the star-shaped pan.

Layering the colors was SO much fun.

This is what the psychedelic batter looked like just before the pan went into the oven.

This is what it looked like all done. Cool stuff, huh?

While the cake was baking, we messed about looking for appropriate frosting ideas and then settled for chocolate. Chocolate! We came up with our own very simple frosting. It was absolutely delicious. Looks so pretty too.

Almost all frosted. We added the kids’ names to the cake and got Noo to cut the cake while Ray and Hasan watched. Both Noo and Ray loved the frosting too.

Look at this beauty. The colors, and the chocolate. Mmmm. The next time, we’re going to use white baking chocolate.

And because it’s fun, I’m going to share our Accidentally Yummy Chocolate Frosting for Any Cake recipe.

12-15 baking chocolate squares

2 tablespoons milk

1 container Nestle honey flavored cream

1 tiny container Nestle sweetened condensed milk

Melt the cooking chocolate by double-boiling it. When it’s almost gooey, add the milk and the cream. Mix well before adding the sweetened condensed milk. Stir until the concoction turns dreamily creamy and your kitchen smells like you imagine chocolate heaven would smell. Pour over cake and smooth with a spatula.

About an hour in the fridge did wonders for both the cake and the frosting.

Lick fingers, spatula, spoon and utensils clean and count the minutes until you can dig into the yumminess. It’s perfect for the end of the week – makes for a great start to the weekend.
