happy birthday kyle!

Yesterday was Kyle’s birthday and he turned 24! I kidded him because I almost had to buy two packs of candles because all i saw were 20 packs.  Then i saw the 24 pack…next year, my friend,  you can join the ‘two-pack’ candle club :)

we celebrated at california pizza kitchen and then had cake at his place!

the cake I made is definitely one of my favorites…it’s a chocolate cake with chocolate icing, what’s not to like, right?

Best Devil’s Food Cake

1 package devils food cake mix

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup water

1 cup vanilla yogurt

3 large eggs


Preheat the oven to 325. Grease and flour 3 8 inch pans.  In a large mixing bowl, beat the cake mix, oil, water, and yogurt until blended.  Add the eggs one at a time-mix for one minute after each egg.  Scrape the sides and mix for 5 minutes on medium high.  Add the vanilla.  Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the cake pulls away from the sides of the pan.  Let it cool in the pan for 25 minutes.

Best Chocolate Icing

4 cups (1 box) powdered sugar

3/4 cup cocoa

1/2 cup butter softened

1/2 cup evaporate milk (or half and half)

1 tsp vanilla

Sift together the cocoa and sugar.  Cream the butter. Alternately add the milk and dry ingredients.   Add the vanilla last, then beat for 5 minutes.  Frost in between and on top of the layers.

i love you kyle! i hope your birthday was great!
