Eric's Adventures in Baking

My Sweet Baboo needed a dessert for an event at his job not long ago, and I encouraged him to make a cake himself. He freaked out a bit, but I assured him he was capable and that I'd make sure he didn't burn down the house or break anything important.
Starting with a boxed chocolate cake mix, he mixed it according to the package directions.

Next, he folded in a can of cherry pie filling and a cup of chocolate chips. (please ignore the recycling next to the mixer how embarrassing!). Then he baked it in a bundt pan, and I helped him make a chocolate glaze for it.

It turned out beautiful and was extremely tasty. Next time we'll try a lemon poppyseed cake, just for fun.

See honey, that wasn't so hard, was it?


What do you think?
