The best cake ever...

I make this super duper chocolate cake, but I only make it every now and then, because it requires so many dishes! It's Clayton's favorite, I haven't named it yet, and made up the recipe on a total fluke.

It's a two layer cake, that once made is gone seriously in 2 days, and I don't eat cake, I swear I don't know how my husband stays so not fat??? He eats like a person who hasn't seen food in over a month.

Food is always on his mind, if it's not food then it's money, and if it isn't those two then well we won't go there.

Right out of the oven...

Making the frosting...

Finished product, and yes, I know I am no where near a cake decorator or froster for that matter!

Usually when I post about food, I always leave y'all with the recipe on how to make it, well I'm sorry guys, but this one is a secret I don't give it out, Madison one day when she is 50 will get it, but till then it's in my lock box.

So instead I will leave you with another chocolate cake recipe, not as good as the talked about one, but close!
