Yum, I wish I had a piece right now! Did you make it for something special or just because you are so nice like that? Wish you were MY neighbor - I'd be right over!!

It was for Emery's birthday. She wanted chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and I don't like chocolate cake mixes or store frosting...so I found this easy recipe and it was so yummy.
