Each year before my birthday, I spend hours looking through cookbooks and cruising the net. No “bought” cakes for me, I enjoy trying to decide what decadent indulgence I am going to make almost as much as eating it. So this year I decided to go retro and back to the 60s with a Milky Way cake. I remember my mother making it in a sheet pan. But there was never enough frosting for me! So I used her recipe to create a 4 tiered chocolate monster – more frosting per cake inch that way 🙂 In fact it was so tall, I had trouble making it straight. I enjoyed a hefty piece and shared the rest with friends. (Okay, so I did put one more piece in the freezer for a rainy day…) Here’s a picture so I can share it with you virtually!
