My good friend and neighbor, Steph, (some of you may know her from Stephanie's Kitchen, and if you don't yet, you need to get to know her, or at least her blog. She is awesome!) gave me this recipe to try to make a special birthday cake for my mom. This was a very involved recipe and the only reason I would spend so much time on a cake is for my mom. I heart my mom! She's number one! Plus, my two sisters and I dragged our kids all the way to Panguitch, Utah (aka middle of NOWHERE) to celebrate with my mom there. You are so worth it, mom!
I substituted chocolate circles for the stars like the recipe called for. I'm on a circle kick right now and I had plans to make it extra fancy, but ran out of time. The circles were probably my favorite part, but keep them in the refridge until you are ready to serve the cake because they do get kinda melty. I had quite a few left over though and made sure to save some of the frosting too so I could eat them together for my midnight snack. I could almost taste each little calorie with each bite!
