Mint Chocolate Cake

Geeze, I am having writing block. Work brain..work.
I had a bad week last week. Had to put Archie(my cat) to sleep and my daughter got bit by some sort of nasty spider. I will spare you the details..but it was the most disgusting thing I have had to deal with.
But this week is bound to be better, right?

I did do my first MAJOR cooking demonstration on Saturday at the Tampa Convention Center.
I was contracted by the USA Poultry and Egg Export Council to do a cooking demonstration for the Commodity Classic, a convention for farmers of soybeans, wheat, corn and sorghum. My demonstration was for 50 minutes, but it felt like 5 minutes. I had a blast and I hope it was not my last.

On to the cake. This is actually my 5 year old daughters cake. She came up with it(with a little help from me)

Cute huh?  Gotta love kids.

    Looks good and it's easy to make, too. Can't beat the chocolate and mint combo. I put mint extract in chocolate pudding pie. So good.

    I was just bitchin' about the girl scouts for looking at me all doe-eyed with their yummy cookies, trying to make me fall off the wagon….well, now you are next on my list. Except this time, my determination is not as stong because the cake looks freakin' PHENOMINAL!

    haha, i love the title! it is evil though, only because it would be impossible for me to stop eating. i'm crazy about mint-chocolate.

    so sorry to hear about your cat and daughter, that's a lot to go through at once.

    The only thing better than chocolate and peanut butter together is chocolate and mint. mmmm. Looks delicious! My oldest niece and I are going to bake a cake later but I've yet to decide what flavor. She's picky and not too adventurous with cake flavors so it'll probably be yellow cake with vanilla buttercream. But this recipe will definitely make it into my "to try" list. =D

    Ewe, a spider bite, yuck. This cake sounds incredible. Andes mints are soooooo yummy. You have got to save that cute little recipe in your daughter's handwriting. I love things like that. Don't you just love them when they're so sweet and innocent?

    I just made this for my boyfriend’s birthday cake, and it was, in fact, delicious! Thanks! (I know you posted this months ago, but my friend sent it to me just the other day, and I saw that there were no comments from people who actually made it, so I figured I would let you know!)
