i am so proud of this cake

a day in the life, food, photos

Honestly. I think it might just be the prettiest cake I’ve ever made. I learned how to do the sort-of firework design first from here and then from the July issue of the Martha Stewart Living magazine.


Chocolate Chip Chiffon Cake


This photo shows just one step in making this delicious cake, the cooling period where we have it upside down on a bottle.

The recipe is from Mema, my grandmother on my Mom’s side. And it is word for word from the original. You’ll have to open the link to read all the semi-ridiculous wording.

Cake recipe: Chocolate Chip Chiffon Cake

The frosting recipe I use:  4-Minute Butter Frosting

This is absolutely one of my family’s favorite cakes, and we make it for almost every birthday. It’s that good.
