My sister-in-law was celebrating her birthday and I thought I'd whip up a nice treat for her. I seem to recall that chocolate cake was among her favorites, and her mother used to make a really wonderful peanut butter frosting; a recipe she shared with me.
Because it would just be my sister-in-law and my brother celebrating her birthday that night, I made two six-inch cakes and filled them with chocolate frosting and peanut butter frosting and the covered the whole cake with more chocolate frosting. I made some vanilla buttercream as well and added some ruffles and a cute flower on the top of the cake in one of Teresa's favorite colors.
Here's the cake in the color-matched kitchen (I think I did pretty well!!!).
And here's the inside of the cake. Delish!
There was some extra batter leftover from her cake, so I made some cupcakes as well. My nephew is not a fan of frosting, so he got some plain chocolate cupcakes to help his mom celebrate. And here were some extra cupcakes that I decorated with all of the extra frostings and fillings.
I hope you had a great birthday, Teresa!
