THE SUPERBOWL IS HERE!!! I’m Rooting for……..

CHOCOLATE CAKE!  Kidding.  I’m MAKING chocolate cake, I’m ROOTING for the 49ers!  GO 49ers!  Sorry all you Raven fans! :( .

I’m going to make a chocolate football cake.  It’s in the oven and it has exactly….15 minutes left, wait 14 minutes and 34 seconds, WAIT!  I’ll stop now.

;D!

When I was making the cake, I was opening a new cocoa powder container.  But guess what?  I got Cocoa Poofed.  HA!  Get it?  ‘Cause ”Cocoa Poofed”  and “Cocoa Puffs”?  So- You know what, I think I’m gonna stop now….

I got the recipe from an OLD Betty Crocker book.  It’s OLD!  My mom got it from my grandma.

See?  Here’s a picture.

“Huh?  WHAT?”

Oh, sorry.  I was just informed by my older sister that the cake wasn’t actually in the oven and is sitting on the counter.  “Just, just pop it in the oven and set the timer to 35-no!  38 minutes!”

Anyways, to make the cake you will need…

BAKING TOWERS!!

BAKING TOWERS!!

Hold, on let me get the recipeeeee…..

1 1/2 cups of sugar…

2/3 cups of cocoa….

1 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda…

1 teaspoon of salt…

1 1/2 cups of buttermilk…

Taylor Swift’s “Red” Album!

Okay, I know it’s been A LONG WHILE.  But hey, I’ve been busy.  (Great excuse, Grace…LOL!)

Raise your hand if your psyched for Taylor Swift’s new album “Red” (okay, sort of new.) *Raise hand* I’m listening to two of the songs on it right now.

Anyways, don’t be suprised if Taylor Swift pops up a lot in the next month.  :)

BABAM!

3-Tone Gummy Bear on a Stick!

Mmm.

Blue raspberry is good.  Cherry is fine.  But orange is phenomenal!  Consistency of a gumdrop (good for small children), and tastes WONDERFUL!  It’s hard to see, but the middle layer is orange, even though the bottom and middle look like cherry!

Buddha’s hand

Ever heard of- or tried Buddha’s hand?  It’s an unusual fruit.  It smells like a lemon, and tastes like lemon rind.  It’s typically used to sweeten dishes.  The white part tastes WAAAAY better than the yellow part, even though neither would make a good dessert!

The Flying Cupcake Bakery

In Indianapolis, Indiana, there is a charming little bakery called “The Flying Cupcake”  I went there, hoping to get their chocolate chip cookie dough cupcake, but they didn’t have any.  I decided to get the “Auf Weidersehen”  it was a lively jumbo German chocolate cupcake with coconut and pecan topping.  It was simply divine.  My Dad bought “It’s not a ho ho” and my older cousin bought a “Pucker up” while, my sister bought a “Cheeky cherry cheese” and we bought my Mom a jumbo Black-bottom cake.

The address of “The Flying Cupcake” is: 715 Massachusetts Ave, Indianapolis, IN, 46204 or 5617 North Illinois street, Indianapolis, IN, 46208.  Visit theflyingcupcake.com to get the menu and more locations! :)
