First, thanks Aunt Paula and Mimi for this old-fashioned cake plate! Isn’t it so cute?! Antique shopping runs in the family and this was definitely a great find. Second, happy birthday Naiomi. My cousin Naiomi’s birthday was on Friday and we celebrated last night with this chocolate cake. And it did not disappoint!
When I make cake from scratch, I usually always make vanilla because I have not found a chocolate cake recipe that I like. That is until now. We are chocolate fiends in our family so I needed to find the perfect chocolate cake recipe for Naiomi’s birthday. After perusing Pinterest for a while, this cake by Baker by Nature looked so amazing I needed to try it!
The original recipe called for two 9 inch pans but I decided to use one 10 inch pan instead since I’m starting to practice making wedding cakes for my best friend’s wedding in May. It took much longer to bake thank I anticipated but it was so moist and rich. The frosting didn’t quite cover the whole cake so it’s have naked/half frosted but still delicious!
As I mentioned above, I never like the homemade chocolate cakes I make but this recipe is easy to follow and so incredibly delicious! I will definitely be making it again and you should too; you won’t be disappointed! For the original recipe by Baker by Nature, go here!
