Chocolate for his Birthday

It was Cisco's birthday a few days ago and I always try to make him something special. He LOVES chocolate so I made a (two) magnolia chocolate cake with a chocolate Swiss Meringue icing. After seeing this photo on Martha Stewart's website I was dying to decorate a cake this way, so I improvised instead of a color gradient, I used cocoa powder.


  1. Yum, yum, yum!! Happy Birthday Cisco!

  2. Um, that looks amazing! Thanks for posting that. I may need to whip that up this weekend :)

  3. this looks amazing! amazing as in pretty, but also as in i'm drooling right now :P

  4. So I did whip it up, and it was delish!
    The kitchen was a wee bit hot thanks to our weather these days, so the icing was needless to, fun to work with. Not as pretty as yours, but still tasted great!

  5. Amanda! I'm so glad you tried it :) It's my go to chocolate cake!!
