This looks so good that I’d like it for breakfast! Your picture of the completed cake makes me image that I can smell chocolate, and reminds me of Hershey, PA. Have you ever been there? The whole town smells like chocolate.- I don’t know how they do it! The street lamps are in the shape of chocolate kisses. https://glovergardens.com/2017/09/21/hershey-pa-how-sweet-it-is/
Yes I have vacationed there! My favorite things were the street lights and touring the factory…..the free candy bar after the tour was nice too…lol
You must have been thinking of that when you made that cake, which I can still smell in my imagination, by the way!
Hahaha it is a smell we will never forget!
Yep! This and the frosting had my mouth watering!
It is so good it makes you want to eat it with a spoon! Hahaha
