My Mom’s birthday is this Tuesday June 14th, so my sisters and I decided to throw her a surprise party today! We’ve been scheming and planning it for a few weeks now. My sis Lindsey and I were in charge of the desserts, so of course, I chose a chocolate cake to make. Lindsey found this Strawberry Cake on The Hungry Housewife’s yummy blog! When she started describing this wonderful ‘ooey gooey’ cake she had found I said, “Oh, Lin, let me make it. I would ♥ to blog about it!” So here it is. It was soooo dang yummy. And ooey gooey. And wonderful. A perfect summer dessert. Oh, and I should mention, very easy to make!
