Trainwreck Cake is a perfect collision of flavors! The chocolate cake, caramel sauce, whipped cream and Heath bites combine to make this dessert a mouth-watering explosion!
The last few days have been ones of celebration of love. This past Saturday was my friend Emily’s bridal shower (who if you recall I will be a bridesmaid for in her wedding). The event was a perfect combination of friends, family, food and wine. It was so fun to all come around and celebrate her in this exciting time in her life. Weddings are a new beginning and a celebration of love. They mark a transition in life and a commitment to spend the rest of your days loving another human being. I am so happy for her that she found someone who makes her as happy as her fiance does. He isn’t like any of the other guys she’s dated before and absolutely adores her. I can’t wait to celebrate their happy beginning in October.
The other special event was Matt and I’s two year anniversary. I love making a point to celebrate our anniversary because it is the one day a year that is all about us and how far we have come. It’s hard to believe that two years has flown by as quickly as it has. He is a great person who brings out the best in me. Although we have our own struggles and challenges, whenever we come together we are stronger than we ever have been. I can’t wait to celebrate many, many more anniversaries with him. The time is ticking down until I get to see him again in September.
It was for such lovely occasions that I knew a cake was in order for the blog. But not just any cake. It had to be a super awesome amazing one dripping in extravagance. This cake came to mind. Initially my Grandma Gail’s recipe, it is often made for my cousin’s birthday.
It is a treat. The chocolate cake serves as a fluffy base for the salty caramel sauce, cool whipped cream, and crunchy Heath bites. The result is a cake that is so good it surpasses all flavor boundaries. Trainwreck it is, because it is drop dead delicious.
I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the last few days than with this cake.
And here’s to love, and how it inspires us and changes our lives forever.
