who wants more cake?!?!

17 Jun

so today being father’s day and all.  i did not make cake.  i know.  i just can’t get the hang of this timing thing.

i made cake tuesday.  and i count it as father’s day cake.

one of scott’s favorite candies (he likes ALOT of different ones) is whoppers.  you know those malted milk balls covered in milk chocolate.  yeah.  that’s the ones.  anyway, i needed some brown decorations for a a church shower and decided on whoppers.

so i had 10 jars of whoppers.  what to do?  make a whopper of a cake!

2 layers of chocolate fudge cake and frost with chocolate buttercream frosting.

add whoppers.  my technique was 1 for the cake…1 for me….1 for the cake….1 for me.  and then it wasn’t.  on account that you can only eat so many whoppers.

WALAA!  A WHOPPER OF A CAKE.  and look at the lovely hobnail cake stand.  LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!  seriously, love me some white bumpy stuff.  🙂

a whopper width slice will do ya.

you could feed a small village this cake for a month of sundays.  seriously.

oh yeah, make cupcakes with left over batter and throw a whopper on a dollop of vanilla bean frosting.

ok.  i’m totally not making any cake for at least a month.  swear.

    Love it! You are so clever! May have another shower opportunity with Nora “in absentia” and a German theme. Sound like fun?
