365 - Day 6

This morning I after my shower I received a text from my sister-in-law, Tina. The text was asking when we (my mother and I) would be leaving to come to their house and she also let us know that she and Olivia had baked us a chocolate cake the night before. Oh cake - it was all I could think about the whole trip up. As you know I have to limit my intake of sweets so I when I have something sweet it is usually during a special occasion. When we finally arrived (after a short shopping trip to Ikea) we hurried through our dinner and then moved on to feast upon the delicious cake. It was all I dreamed of and more...chocolate cake with cream cheese icing topped with pink and red heart shaped sprinkles. My little niece is becoming some what of a little baker. Tina said that when they first began to bake together Olivia would smash the egg and then Tina would have to pick out the egg shells. Now Olivia will meticulously tap the egg in order to crack it without the shells going in the product. Below is the cake (after we sliced it) that Olivia was so proud to show us when we arrived!

Mmmm yummy. I have never tried a chocolate cake with cream cheese icing. I'm more of a chocolate on chocolate, but by the looks of that cake next time it will be cream cheese.
