How was your Easter? Did you have an egg hunt or eat chocolate bunnies? My day was punctuated with sharing good food with friends and family.
Shawn and I started the morning early by walking down to Lovejoy Bakers. Love this place – great pastries and food, fun atmosphere, and free wi-fi. We sat inside with our iPads and nibbled on pastries.
Later, we met our friends Jenny and Jason for lunch/brunch at Huber’s.
And for dinner we went over to my aunt and uncles for a big family gathering.
And what did I bring? The cake! And not just any cake, a REALLY moist, yummy chocolate cake with buttery-chocolate frosting! Literally the cake was devoured down to half of a small slice! And what delicious recipe did I use? Ha it was from a box! Trader Joe’s Chocolate Cake Mix and Chocolate Frosting Mix. I made the cake as directed. The frosting I made my own adjustments (below). Try it – you’ll love it!
1 package Trader Joe’s Chocolate Frosting
1 1/2 cubes butter, melted
A few tablespoons whole milk
About 1/2-3/4 c. powdered sugar
Blend butter and frosting mix. Add milk. Then add powdered sugar until desired consistency is reached (fluffy and easy to spread).
