Why is it more important to celebrate a French sculptor on Veterans Day on Google’s search page instead of a nice Veterans Day banner?
Delicious semi homemade chocolate cake with raspberry and buttercream filling and icing, topped with fresh raspberries and shaved Velrona chocolate . I added 1/2 cup of quinoa flower to a recipe of dark chocolate cake mix , used 1 cup of milk, 1 stick of non salted butter, 1/4 cup of sour cream full fat, 3 eggs, 2 tsp of real vanilla extract.
It turned out delicious !

I decided to start a new blog for my baking, so La Petite Baker was born. Check my new posts at http://lapetitebaker.blogspot.com/ . Blogspot was my choice for blog beacuse it allows me to add extra links that the free version of WordPress wouldn’t allow.
Also, check out the La Petite Baker store – Shop for baking stuff!! Books, kitchen appliances
The final cake was a rectangle, easier to cut and you get more slices – and ew did get a lot, plus I even brought some cake back home.
Took me about 3 hrs to decorate, just because I have to do it all, cut the cake, clean-up after each step, make the icing, different colors, pipe it, cut the gum paste for the logo — etc – but it turned out great. Everyone loved the look and taste!
Mission accomplished ;-)
I have been changing my mind about a cake I have to make for a Saturday barbecue for the Florida Key Club.
First, it was going to be a yellow sheet cake, then I saw the round logo on the web site and decided to make a 14″ round cake to fit the logo design, but decided the cutting would not be as friendly as a sheet cake, plus we might not have enough pieces for 30-35 people, or they will be too skinny. Now, I went back to the sheet cake, chocolate with one of two layers of butter cream …. aahhhhhh. I sometimes drive myself crazy!
Well, check back next week for the cake pictures ;-) and find out what was the final cake verdict!
