Eat Cake....

Hi Everyone!
I have a yummy card for you today, and I'll share my inspiration for this cake too! I came across a few challenges and I just couldn't help myself.  I LOVE chocolate cake!!! 
Challenges:

So I was really craving chocolate cake and starting looking through the internet and I found this yummy looking piece of cake. So I decided since I didn't have time to go out and purchase all the ingredients and then bake it, I would use it for inspiration for making a birthday card! 

If you're interested this came from Southern Living and you can click HERE for the recipe. This is on my list of things to bake :)

Oooh, this is magically delicious! :o) My sweet friend, this is truly divine! I adore the brown/pink combo and your design is stunning. I LOVE the tulle, ribbon, button, twine combo... it's gorgeous. And of course, the cake itself is amazing! You even gave it a shiny ganache glaze... amazing, my friend. Be sure to tell us how that cake is when you make it! I adore making cakes! :o) (And I love the whimsical stitchy paper... dessert IS whimsical, after all. Brilliant choice.) Have a wonderful day, my friend!

Hugs and blessings!
