so my sisters birthday was coming up and i decided to make a spectacular cake for the event. Ok well maybe @pintworks talked me into it. But it turned out quite well. Tastiest cake evah! used this recipe for the cake: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Double-Chocolate-Layer-Cake-101275 the frosting was @pintworks’ evil buttercream frosting.
heres the coffee and chocolate melting together into rich brown lusciousness
here are the dry ingredients all mixed up
mimixin it all up
had a lil taste. mmmmm…
after pouring into pans. i used 9″ instead of the 10″ it asked for, which meant the cooking time was a bit longer. took about an hour and 20 mins
making @pintworks buttercream frosting.. it called for 10 egg whites lol also there is a cup and a half of sugar which melted
mmmmm stiff peaks. hehe
mixing up the other stuff for frosting, 4 sticks of butter -paula deen would love this.. cup of powdered sugar, 1/3 cup cocoa
after folding in the egg white mixture
rita’s evil cheddar bay biscuits and twice baked potatoes!
mmmm finished cake.. it tasted delicious but i think next time i will add a little more cocoa in the frosting
hilarious pic of rita after i called lauren a pyro
tried to take pic of elaine blowing out candles but for once she moved fast.
rita cutting the cake.. it really should have cooled more before i frosted it but everyone was demanding cake angrily.
some highlights from the evening~
Elaine: Sometimes I just get to where I don’t want to take a bath. I just want to lay on my bed with my cat.
Sarah: That’s not good. You’ll start to smell like cat.
Elaine: I probably already do! I had to rinse my hair with the cat water, because my water heater was broken.
Sarah: What? The cat water?
Rita: Elaine, you don’t mean that.
Elaine. No, you’re right. That didn’t even happen. I probably just saw it in a movie.
Rita: You need to get out more.
Josh: (after dropped his pants) I’ve got ’em [freckles] on my ass!
Elaine (to Josh): I heard you on the phone, you said later,WHORE! to me
Julie (helpfully): actually he said “ho,” not “whore.” Elaine: What’s the difference?
Josh: Whores get paid! Hos do it for fun.
Elaine: Well, thank you for clarifying that. (cheerfully) I’m a ho!
Josh: Happy Birthday, Mom.
Elaine: “Kegel recipes” (she meant exercises)
Andrea: I always tell Dad it’s his fault I’m fat. Because when he would drive to the store to get a six-pack, I would get a candy bar. And an hour later, he would drive to the store to get a six pack, and I would get a candy bar…
Andrea (intensely staring at twice-baked potato, interrupting Mary mid sentence): Why are you people not eating your potatoes!?!?!?–Sorry.
[Elaine explains that older people don’t have to bathe very much.]
Elaine: When you age…your skin…
Andrea: Mom, just take a bath! What else do you have to do??
