Cub Scout Cake Carnival: Chocolate Cake
Last night was the annual Cub Scout cake carnival. The boys had lots of fun watching magic, playing games and getting their faces painted. While all that goes on, there is a silent cake auction to raise funds for the Pack. This year, I made Hershey's "Perfectly Chocolate" chocolate cake. It is an easy and fun cake to make. I always make a double batch of icing as I hate to run out! Plus, I like to have enough icing to thin some for a crumb coat which helps make a smooth cake. The dividend for the boys is getting to have a chocolate treat while I clean up. At the end of the night, the cake brought $10 for the pack and won a certificate for "Most Delicious Looking"! Hope you try this at home, it is sure to be a winner in your house too!
