I made a German Chocolate Cake for Joshua’s birthday on Sunday. I will say I did a pretty good job. I didn’t actually have a bar of the German chocolate, instead I used 16 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 6 tablespoons of sugar, and 4 tablespoons of coconut oil, heated in the microwave and stirred.) 

 

 

 

Once assembled, it wasn’t very pretty on the sides, so I whipped together some butter cream and put it on the side. (Note: Palm shortening can be used in butter cream in place of butter with no taste difference!)

We had a little party for him (okay we had friend’s over for dinner, but the kids all thought we were having a party. I asked Joshua is he wanted to start a game of pin the tail on the donkey, he declined.) the kids loved singing happy birthday to him and presenting him with the cards (and crown) they worked so hard to make for him!

It was also the 11th anniversary of the day we met.
