Today you get a new recipe from me. I was just asked (yesterday) to do a cake for Friday for a 16 year old birthday party. It’s for a dear friend, so I said that I’d do it. You’ll get to see the results tomorrow. Today, I’ll give you a new chocolate cake recipe – another of my favorites. I’ll also tell you what not to do since I messed the first one up royally. I’m going to also tell you how to make lemons into lemonade…I know, a little Pollyanna of me. Who can’t play the glad game every once in a while? The first thing is the recipe. This recipe is from a friend who got me into making cakes. After I tasted her cakes and saw her results, I mooched recipes off of her, and my passion began. I had to convert this from bakery measurements in ounces to actual measurements for real people.
