Chocolate Cream Cake is a must! So today my baby girl turns 21 years old. I do not know where the time has gone. She loves chocolate cake and so I decided that this was the one for her birthday. And of course we all loved it. It tastes even better with a scoop of Vanilla Bean ice cream. The whipped cream filling in between the layers makes it a nice change from the regular frosting in this delicious chocolate cream cake.

Chocolate Cream Cake

And so 21 years ago I had my hardest delivery out of my five children, this baby was turned sideways and we were having a hard time getting her here. The doctor told me to come to the hospital at 7:00 pm. I had moved at this time and we lived an hour away. I didn’t feel like I was ready at 7 o’clock and so I went at 10:00 pm. I do not think that the doctor was very happy. But I just wasn’t feeling the labor pains like I was use to. The doctor gave me some pitocin and it made me so sick that I threw up all over. Finally, I settled down after a few hours and went to sleep. She wasn’t born until 5:30 am. I was so glad when that was over and done. Then I remember laying in the bed and this little voice saying, okay, now you have one more boy to come to your family. I said to that little voice.”are you crazy”? I am finished with having babies, this was too much work and I am in pain. With that being said, 2 years later, we had a boy. But I will talk about him on his birthday.

Our daughter is a fun loving girl that really cares for people. She sees the good in others and she has a good heart. She also loves cars, nail polish, getting her hair done and she is an amazing piano player. I was happy to make this chocolate cream cake, even though she really wanted the copy-cat-kneader-easter-cupcakes.   I’m not going to lie, sometimes when I need a recipe, I make what I want so I can put it on the blog. One cannot make the same recipe once a week. 🙂 I know that the other recipe is her very favorite, but this recipe is one of our favorites too! I hope that Alycia’s birthday is wonderful and that all her dreams come true today!
