Townley's Birthday Cake

Posted by Kimberly:

After our oldest child, Blake was born almost nine years ago, I took a Wilton cake decorating class at Hobby Lobby because I wanted to be able to make his birthday cake. Ever since then, I have made all of my kids cakes and have also done some for other people. In addition to cakes, I have also done sugar cookie bouquets, cupcakes, and tiered cakes for wedding anniversaries and birthdays.

My youngest child Townley just recently celebrated her 4th birthday. I can hardly believe it! She wanted a ladybug cake, so the cake in the picture is what I made for her party. She wanted the cake to be chocolate, so I used the chocolate chip bundt cake recipe below.

Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake

4 eggs
1 1/2 cups water
1 tsp. vanilla
1 package butter recipe cake mix
One 3.4 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix
One 3.4 oz. package instant chocolate pudding mix
1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a bundt pan. In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs, water, and vanilla by hand. Stir in the cake mix and pudding mixes. Slowly add the butter and oil, and mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes, then invert onto a cake plate.

This cake requires no icing. Hard to believe, I know, but it really doesn't. However, my husband and I have found that pouring a jar of chocolate fudge over the top makes it extra yummy!

I have made this a lot for other people, and it is always a big hit. Oh, and it made a great birthday cake too!!!

Hey, I just tried your strawberry smoothie recipe...happened to have fresh strawberries so I used those. It was very good! I think I would like to chill it a little more. I had just gotten back from the store so the cottage cheese wasn't super cold, I guess! That is a great healthy snack! Thanks!
