Double Chocolate Bundt Cake

My oldest daughter turns 11 today. She had some friends over for a little get together this weekend.

Who knew that 7 eleven year olds made more noise than the monkey house at the zoo?

My little sister is 13 and though I wasn't home for her 11-year-old get togethers, my brother was and I remember the stories. Oh, the stories :P This double chocolate bundt looks luscious with that glaze!

I've used those candles (and when I say "those" candles, I mean the very same ones,) 3 years in a row. If they blow out the candles fast enough- they last forever!

I have a very important question: I have been assigned a "fruit side" for Thanksgiving. Any suggestions??

Lisa Marie,
Are those candles not the cutest candles?!?!

So, Thanksgiving appetizers are really my specialty. That's what I am alway assigned. I have a delicious cranberry salsa recipe, also a delightful cranberry sorbet. My sister made the greatest pear-gorgonzola-candied pecan baguettes last night.

I'm looking for a fruit side dish for you. Do you have the Junior League of SL cookbook "Always in Season"? There is a "Sweet Potato and Apple Scallop" recipe that sounds tasty. I can email you the recipe if you want. Good luck!

I am so not a good baker so dread doing the birthday cake thing and usually buy one. I made this on the weekend for my daughter's 16th and everyone, including the birthday girl, loved it. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
