Rocky Road Birthday Cake

It comes as no surprise that I make my own birthday cake. I enjoy baking and I love getting creative in the kitchen with chocolate and sprinkles and anything else that I can find.

Last year, when I turned 25, I went over the top and made a crazy sprinkles cake. To this day, this is still my favorite cake ever. This year, on my 26th birthday, I’ve decided to keep things a little more low-key.

I am having a birthday dinner with twelve of my friends and I’ve decided to present each of them with a slice of birthday cake in cute packaging, thanks to Sotrene Grene. The cake is a very simple Rocky Road. Easy to make, delicious to eat and idea for transporting in a shoe box.

Hope you enjoy!
