This is Anneke's who requested a flower cake:
And for the older two kids parties we opted for icecream "sundaes". They love piling up there bowls with all kinds of candies, fruit and syrup! Me...I go for the icecream, strawberries and bananas with some chocolate syrup...mmmm...
For the cakes I used a recipe from a friend and it worked out great! Cuts really nicely because it's a bit more dense but is still really moist and chocolatey. I'll pass it on to you here:
Classic Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cups cocoa
1 tsp vanilla
1 ¼ tsp baking soda
1 cup mayonnaise
¼ tsp baking powder
1 1/3 cups water
1 2/3 cup white sugar
Grease and flour bottoms of two 9” round cake pans. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and baking powder; set aside. Beat eggs, sugar and vanilla in large bowl at high speed of electric mixer for 3 min or until smooth and creamy. Reduce speed to low, beat in mayonnaise until blended. Add flour mixture in 4 equal
additions, alternating with water, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Pour into prepared pans. Bake at 350°F for 30 – 35 min or until toothpick comes out clean. Fill and frost as desired.
