Join me in celebrating Kim’s birthday, won’t you? You probably know Kim better as the evil genius behind Cravings of a Lunatic. Each year for her birthday, she asks a fellow blogger to make a birthday cake for her. I am honored that she asked me to be that fellow this year.a gift card, and the giveaway is open to everyone in the US and Canada. Check the end of this post for a link and enter!
Let me introduce you to Kim’s birthday cake, the Turtle Smore Chocolate Cake. First, the cake itself is a version of Hershey’s perfectly chocolate chocolate cake. You can find the recipe on the back of any can of Hershey’s cocoa powder. For Kim’s cake, I added just a hint of coffee extract, increased the salt just a bit, and caramelized half the sugar called for to deepen the chocolate flavor.
