Baking date: October 7, 2018
There have been a number of times when athletes my kids are on teams with have experienced season-ending injuries. And while I know that sugar doesn’t take the sting out of not being able to finish out a season or the pain from the injury, having something sugary certainly doesn’t hurt, right?
One of the JV football players that my younger son Nick used to play with (Nick has given up football) chipped a bone in his heal and is out for the season. Of course, that meant I
needed wanted to get him a cake.
After asking his mom about favorite flavors, I settled on a hot chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream and marshmallow buttercream frosting. The recipe makes a three layer cake, but I went with two thick layers.
I hope the cake helps with the healing, Rhett. Looking forward to seeing you join the varsity team next Fall.
P.S. athletes, please stop with the injuries to get a sweet treat. Just ask, I’ll make it.
