I decided to make this awesome chocolatey cake for my dh for Valentines. I baked it yesterday and assembled it last night while my boys (aged 2 1/2 and 1 ) were asleep. This morning while I was in the shower, my two year old found the cake in the fridge and dug into the icing. Luckily I had some extra icing left over and was able to save it. This afternoon I decided to do the chocolate dipped strawberries that are going to top the cake. Well I burnt the white chocolate in the microwave, so I decided to go with milk chocolate. Well the phone rang and while I was on it, my son decided to "help". He pushed all my dipped strawberries into a big mess . I had to call my girlfriend to go buy me more chocolate and there was no way I was gonna throw out strawberries that cost $5 a pint so I washed them off, let them dry and re-dipped them. All I have to say is this cake better be worth it! I know there are other cake decorators out there with little kids, how do you do it? Thanks for letting me vent.
