this content but once i started reading the recipe i started rethinking how much effort i would be able to put into the cake with my now fully walking + mobile nephew here all day thursday, the daycare kids from 740-1230 and then my parents set to arrive at 1ish. a shortcut started sounding pretty darn good right about then.

my response and here’s the deal…i dont know if its the chocolate cake recipes that i have chosen to make in the past (about 4 different ones) or my oven or something wrong with the baker (moi) but the chocolate cakes never turned out great. they were always tasty and totally edible, but never lived up to what i thought they would taste like. you know- ethereal, dense in a good way, moist, chocolatey, the best thing to ever grace my fork. okay, maybe my expectations were set just a touch too high. regardless, they all failed to make me feel like the finished product was worth all the work.

follow so sometimes i cheat. and then i dont tell anyone so i can sneakily see if anyone even notices that the cake came from a box.

(i ended up using marthas recipe for the frosting only because i wasnt sure if the baked recipe would be enough to frost a 2 layer cake. i have made the filling from the baked cookbook before and it was just as tasty)
