So, my art doesn’t always take place in a studio or on a canvas.  It takes place in a kitchen some weekends.  And this was one of those weekends.  With my husband’s birthday fast approaching I decided to make him a birthday cake– not just any old birthday cake.  This recipe comes from the CIA baking and pastry book.  The cake is awesome.  Worth the time and effort.  I know that it’s only the two of us, but we WILL finish this cake.  Even if we have to eat it for breakfast, mid morning snack, lunch, afternoon snack, dinner, and of course dessert.  (Chocolate butter cake with white chocolate, cream cheese butter cream frosting)
