Not Back To School Part 2


IMG_6103 copy

Last month I mentioned that I had brought two dishes to our Homeschool Support Group’s Not Back To School Party.  I almost forgot to tell you about the dessert!  But first, some more pictures of my cuties from the party.


Liam really wanted to slide.


It was a really big slide.


But Liam had some help.


Maybe a little too much help.


So, here it is.  Chocolate Cake with Biscoff Cream Cheese Icing. This recipe came from The Food Librarian.  She had me at Biscoff.  I love those little cookies, and am so glad that not only they, but also the spread made from them, have made it to local grocery stores. 


I followed the two recipes The Food Librarian used but alas! I do not own any of those lovely chocolate sprinkles.  I think I need to check World Market for them.  So, instead, I crushed some Biscoff cookies and sprinkled on top. 

My assessment: the chocolate cake is a good one.  It is very easy to make.  It also stayed moist for me.  The icing, oh the icing!  I don’t know what magical properties this concoction created, but this is a very unique icing.  There was a smoky flavor and the tang from the cheese.  It seemed to have a mature flavor, so do not hesitate to make these with grownups in mind.  But, hey, it’s cake, so kids will dig it too.

P.S. If you are not already following The Food Librarian’s blog, you really should.
