Chocolate spells love in any language...


Chocolate-spells-love-in-any-language

So we celebrated yet another birthday in the Yam family. Nephew #1's birthday. Notice the same banner in the photo as when we celebrated nephew #2's birthday last month? Yep, it has been up for a whole month! *hahaha*


Since chocolate spells love in any language *winks*, I went with a chocolate cake. Evidently, the right choice judging by the beaming birthday boy. :)


Of course, the first thing the Gangster Gang (aka nephews + niece) asked was, "Where are the pigs?"
That's because I had previously showed them a picture of the Pigs in Mud Kit Kat Birthday Cake. Yeah, the fave aunt kinda "underperformed" here. *hangs head in shame*


But you know me...it was no basic cake - it was a 3 layer chocolate mousse cake! The kit kats were just there to hide my lousy icing skills. Seriously, icing a cake is really hard...so I always describe my cakes as rustic-looking. *LOL*


Well, the rustic-looking cake was a hit! *high fives all around*


And I did finally get a decent shot of the Gangster Gang using the classic works-all-the-time trick...."no chocolate cake for you if I don't get a nice photo!" 

Yep, always works. With chocolate. And cheese.

Nothing wrong with rustic! It looks delicious. Kit-Kats only make it better. I love that you added a pig to the layout. I'm thinking you could have laminated him and stuck him on top of the cake first!
