Brooklyn Blackout Cake


My husband decided to go fishing yesterday after I came home from work. He took our 11 yr. old son with him, thank goodness! Lately my son seems to whine about everything, being the only boy, I think he feels defeated by his sisters.  After sitting in front of the computer for an hour I started to get a little bored, and decided to take the opportunity to catch up on my "Cake Slice" baking, I can't really relax when my son and my husband are home, too much traffic coming in and out of the kitchen. 
I started on my Blackout Cake first then realized I had everything for the Cinnamon Swirl pound cake, and the Meringue Cups! So off I went into deep concentration! Baking is definitely the therapy I need every so often!
Loved how this cake turned out, the pudding was delicious and really simple to make. The frosting was heaven, I think the next time around I might add cream cheese to the frosting just to cut back the sweetness a little, other wise perfect!

Great job! Baking is definitely my therapy as well. Whenever I'm stressed I head to the kitchen and turn on the oven. Your cake looks great and I love the idea of the cream cheese in the frosting!

Looks good and yummy! Homemade cakes really do taste better than store-bought ones. Not to mention baking it has that personal touch.
