National Championship Celebration
Around half time we dove into the cake Isaiah and I had made earlier in the day. Ever since we went to Idaho and Isaiah made a cake with Aunt Jolene that had yummy frosting I wanted to try making frosting.
The chocolate frosting recipe I used: (found on the back on the Hershey's Cocoa box)
1/2 c butter or margarine
2/3 c cocoa
3 c powdered sugar
1/3 c milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Melt butter. Stir in cocoa. Alternately add powdered sugar and milk, beating on medium speed to spreading consistency. Add more milk, if needed. Stir in vanilla. About 2 cups.
I thought the cake turned out well and for those of you who know how much I really don't like cake-YES, I ATE CAKE!
Unfortunately, the game had a sad ending as the Ducks lost the National Championship. However, it was a good game and we had a good time with our family!
