#220_ Birthday Cake in a Jiffy

G'daughter Aurionna

I made this cake for our g'daughter, Auri for her 10th birthday
after running errands almost all day and running out of time to make a cake.
Super simple and super easy to do.

The cake is milk chocolate iced with Cream Cheese Frosting,
lady fingers cookies around sides and topped with Cake Balls.

You can put this cake together in 30 minutes... or maybe even less.
No kidding! I know it, because I did it.
That is excluding the baking time and cooling the cake,
and of course the Cake Balls have been made ahead of time.

Cake out of the box
Thanks to my aunt Betty (Crocker), she is a life-saver.

Frost top and sides of cake.
The frosting doesn't have to be perfectly smooth.
In fact I call this a sloppy frosting.

Line lady finger cookies around the side of cake
or you can use chocolate bars.
My sisters who have been decorating cakes this way,
make slabs of chocolate, then cut them to sizes.

Layer whatever you have or whatever you want on top
such as shaved chocolate, M&M's candies,
chopped candy bars and whatnot.
