Food Friday: Birthday Cake

First I would like to thank everyone for last weeks contributions, I had so much fun seeing all these new ideas, that I might do this once a month or once every couple of months, so get those thinking caps on for next time.
Here's last weeks recap:
Myrna: Fajitas
Jen: Chicken Parmesan
Holly: Spinach salad with mushrooms, bacon & poppyseed dressing
Blaine: Good 'ol Spaghetti....YUM!! Don't forget the garlic bread, I'm such a garlic bread junkie :)
Stephanie: Right Side Up Pork Chops which is served with steamed broccoli & mashed potatoes.
I haven't tried this one yet since I didn't have everything in the house to make it. I will be picking up the ingredients this weekend when I go grocery shopping for next weeks meal plan, for sure!
This weeks meal plan: Birthday Cake
Sunday is my birthday....yay!
My last year in my 20's ....c'est la vie.
I'm really not much of a baker, I have a few tried and true cookie recipes that I stick with.
Not to mention when I do bake cake, it's from a box...yep I'm guilty.
I'm also a chocolate person, which meant chocolate cake with chocolate icing.
Until Jen introduced me too.....
French Vanilla Frosting
I honestly don't remember if it's a Betty Crocker brand or not (this was the only photo I could find)
So go and bake a cake any chocolate flavour will do, the more fudgey the better in my opinion.
Once cooled, slather vanilla frosting all over it.
Happy Birthday to me.
