                                 SWEET ANNABELLE IS TURNING 3!
We're celebrating my youngest grand daughter's birthday today with a fall flavored birthday party complete with a camp fire to accommodate the roasting of marshmallows for s'mores.
My daughter showed Annabelle the pic of the campfire birthday cake I made for her, and she said her eyes just lit up. It garnered a huge smile too! Mission accomplished.
I found the inspiration for this cake on Pinterest. It was really fun to make.
Here's my how to:
                                                 CAMPFIRE CAKE
I made a box chocolate cake mix and added double melted butter instead of oil, cracked in an extra (grade A XL) egg, and used milk instead of water for a bakery style decadent cake--
If you've followed the other cakes I've made, you'll know this is my MOST favorite part of the caking process...the FROSTING! I made a batch of Hershey's chocolate icing for the rich moist cake. The recipe can be found on the back of the Hershey's Cocoa container. It's 2/3 cups Hershey's Cocoa, 1/2 cup melted butter, 1/3 cup of milk, 3 cups of powdered sugar, and 1 tsp. vanilla.  Just melt the butter, add the cocoa to butter, and alternate blending in the powdered sugar and milk as you beat it with a mixer.  Then add in the (good quality) vanilla at the end when smooth. Without fail a family member will be waiting for the spoon to lick. Just hand it back over your right shoulder~
I used Jolly Rancher candies for the flames. Line a baking sheet with foil, spray with Canola oil, and place package of unwrapped red hard candies on foil. Bake in oven for 7-10 minutes at 350 degrees, until melted. Let candy cool and gently lift from foil. Have fun breaking it into shards for the cool flames!
I used Creme de Pirouline chocolate hazelnut cookies for the logs. Place the shards of candy in a flame pattern in the center and add in logs (I broke some of them into pieces to fit  better.)  Then add a garland of fat, fluffy, sugary marshmallows around the bottom of the cake.
Grab your sticks---it's time to make s'mores! Speaking of which, individual packages of s'more making supplies are a great idea, especially since we have 5 grand kiddos under the age of 7. Moms and Dads can just grab a pack by the fire and roast away. There are even Wet Wipes included for the sticky aftermath.
HAPPY FALL Y'ALL!!!  And a big happy birthday to our precious Annabelle!!!
