Around 5:30 I found myself thinking about using up all the stuff in my pantry so we don't have to move it. Rick had bought one of those Dunkin Hines Dark Chocolate cake mixes, cans of fluffy white frosting, and a pink gel painting gel to make me a birthday cake not long ago. I figured here's an opportunity to make a Happy Monday cake :)
I figured I'd just mix it up by hand - no need to pull out the kitchen-aid mixer. I must say that I haven't mixed a batter by hand for 2 minutes straight in a very long time. It was a second work out for the day.
Rick came home around 6:40 and the cake was still in the oven, smelling all chocolatey :)
He enjoyed dessert :)
