Making this card definitely got me craving some cake, so I finally caved and split a Great Wall of Chocolate at Chang's last night...yummy!
Cake is definitely a banner-worthy event, isn't it? All the papers and stickers are from (where else?) Echo Park (I think from the Life is Good pack, but don't quote me on that). I cut the banner using PTI's banner dies. Little Miss Abigail is from Eat Cake Graphics, and I colored her with copics and also paper-pieced her bow, dress, and shoes. The sentiment is also from ECG, stamped with Colorbox Rouge chalk ink. The buttons are from Stampin' Up.
What is your favorite cake? I LOVE the Hershey's Torte cake my mom makes for me every time I visit. I can't even mess up this recipe; the hardest part is buying all the ingredients and chopping the Hershey bars. Here it is:
1 box german chocolate cake mix
1 small box instant vanilla pudding
1 1/2 cup milk
1 c oil
Mix well. Bake 30 minutes at 325 in 3 layers (make sure you grease the pans!). Cool completely before frosting.
8 oz cream cheese
1 c confectioner's sugar
1/2 c sugar
8 oz cool whip
1/2 c pecans (optional)
6 Hershey's plain chocolate bars, chopped fine, or 1 bag Hershey's chips (I like the chopped candy bars better)
Frost between layers and on top. Refrigerate. Be prepared-after you serve this once, you will have a whole line of Abigails waiting for the next piece!
