TWD Devil's Food White Out Cake



February is a month of birthdays : first comes Carlo's on the 8th, and on the 23rd it will be mine.
So Carlo was the lucky guy to get this wondergful birthday cake !



But as you know when someone is happy there is always some other one whose day is THE WORST EVER !!!!!!



But some cake managed to bring a smile back on her face and not only on hers: this is the last slice ! I had to fight to get a picture of it !!



Please visit Tuesdays with Dorie for more cake.
Thanks to Stephanie of Confessions of a City Eater for choosing this wonderful cake for us to bake! You can find the recipe on her post, or on page 247-249 of Dorie's book Baking From My Home to Yours.
