Day ten I’m nearly there! I’m nearly to a day devoted to red and pink and glitter and chocolate! Initially you might think todays project was a bit on the lame side, but just hold on.
First up is a chocolate cake. Today is our church’s Valentine’s banquet. I think a lot of churches don’t have these anymore. Our church is still doing it and they do it really well. It’s always decorated so nice and there’s child care (which means I’ll be able to eat an entire meal without being interrupted a million times. Can I get a hallelujah?!) AND I don’t have to cook, so bonus! Any way I offered to make a dessert which at first glance seems pretty nice but I have a selfish motive. This way I can ensure that there is at least one dessert that I can eat (dairy free).
I used this recipe (it’s my go to chocolate cake) and swap in almond milk for regular and have never noticed a difference. If you make this cake try her frosting it’s soooo good. Unfortunately I haven’t figured out a dairy free rue yet so I can’t have it (hence the powdered sugar topping.)
Okay now for the real treats. Da da da da!!!! I have give-a-ways of love for you sweet readers!! Let me begin by saying I waited to photograph them until today and it was a super grey snowy (blech) day. So, I had troubles with the photos (always a disappointment in the blogging world).
