SURPRISE!!!! We pulled it off a great birthday surprise!! We had great food, great friends, and lots of fun!!! I have to apologize, I'm in charge of the blog this week and I forgot to post yesterday and I'm not getting much Thanksgiving done, sorry. I may have to extended it into next week.

Marla's cake was a Halloween delight, my daughter and I have had this cake for our birthdays since we were little its called a Chocolate Torte any party will be a hit with this sensational treat!!!

2 Chocolate cake mixes bake as directed, 2 round 9in pans

2 8oz cream cheese, 1 1/3 cup packed brown sugar, 2 tsp vanilla, dash of salt--blend ingredients

3 cups whip cream, whip, then fold into other ingredients

When cakes are cool, cut in half, then layer frosting, you should have four layers that can be exposed or covered with rest of frosting. Keep in refrigerator, best if cooled over night then served.

This is great for any birthday or holiday.....DELICIOUS!!!!!

Happy Birthday Marla!!!!

Love, Tipsy Girl Tonia

You are so much fun! You had us all laughing until the wee hours. You really need to come to Idaho for a visit. I had such a fun time at your last party a week ago! Thanks to you Tonia for always throwing a great bash and making the best chocolate cake. P.S. Are you sending mine in the mail?
