Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Cake And My Victorian Trading Co. Catalog Came!

I thought I'd try something new to bring to my paranormal group meeting. I made strawberry cake and chocolate frosting. Oh yummm! This wasn't homemade though. Sometimes you just gotta go with the good 'ol boxed cake and then make it all pretty! :)









After licking some chocolate from the spoon, I needed a glass of this....

Also, I was excited to see that my Victorian Trading Company catalog had come! Here are just a few things that already caught my eye.



Hope you all are having a nice Sunday night. I am FINALLY relaxing a bit this evening.

Are those chocolate chips or Hersey Kisses on the cake?

Michelle said...

Chocolate chips. :) I was good. Only ate 1 piece! I'm terrible. I take advantage of gatherings to make "bad" stuff then leave the rest for everyone to eat. Lol!

That is the cutest idea...I never thought to make cute little cake loaves. You know what I'll be making tomorrow.... :) Also, I've never heard of the Victorian Trading Co. Magazine...where have I been! Have a great week :)

Michelle said...

Oops, Hippiedog, it's actually a catalog not magazine! Sorry! I just fixed my title. Anyway, it's a wonderful catalog if you haven't seen it yet. I could go broke ordering wrecklessly. :)

I LOVE those cakes!

Shirley said...

Looks delicious. I haven't seen the catalog but it looks wonderful. I'm addicted to catalogs...just love looking through them. For a while I was getting so many it was ridiculous. I had to request removal from some of the mailing lists.

The cakes look delish! I'm watching the sugar around here right now... so sugar-free dark chocolate pudding is dessert and I savor each small mouthful.

I never thought of strawberry cake and chocolate frosting-- and here I thought I was so wild--guess I'm actually mild. Victorian Trading Co. catalog has the most beautiful items--what have you decided you can't live without? You had a pleasant Sunday!

Nothing like strawberry & chocolate. You know I can't wait for those giant, sweet strawberries to come out to dip in chocolate. Ahhhh.

Joanne Kennedy said...

YUM! Chocolate and strawberry! What could be better.

Hey, I have a tip for you when you want to make a homemade cake but don't have the time.

Add about 3 large Tbs. of sour cream to your mix and use milk rather then water. It will give it the homemade taste and texture.

Also, next time you make the strawberry cake try using strawberry nectar rather then water. It gives it a stronger strawberry flavor too.

Hugs,
Joanne
