So, my oldest son turned 4 on the 13th. I wanted to have a homemade cake but wasn’t sure what recipe would be best since I was using whole wheat. I found this one on one of my favorite blogs ( http://www.100daysofrealfood.com/2011/08/05/recipe-whole-wheat-chocolate-cake-with-easy-whipped-cream-frosting/) I used all wheat flour instead of 1/2 white and 1/2 wheat. I also decreased the baking soda by a tsp b/c I thought it would taste too strong. The cake turned out great.
I wasn’t very interested in the icing that goes along with the cake recipe. I thought about what would go best with chocolate cake. Then it hit me, peanut butter icing. Everything, especially chocolate, taste great when you add peanut butter. So, I made this peanut butter icing ( http://allrecipes.com/recipe/fluffy-peanut-butter-frosting/) . I wanted to write on the cake with chocolate icing, so I mixed some cocoa powder, milk, butter, and powered sugar until I got the right consistency.
