Chocolate Chip Cake

Today I am posting a happy accident.  I created a very simple little wedding cake for my Ghostly Great Expectations Halloween scene. (Pictured below.)

I knew the family wouldn't be thrilled with a plain white cake so, I improvised and created a chocolate chip cake.

It was really easy.  I just added maybe 2/3 a cup of regular semi-sweet chocolate chips to the batter and then when I iced the layers I made the center layer chocolate.  I would improve on it though, I think it would work better with mini chocolate chips and I would add a whole cup maybe the whole bag.  The mini chips would probably work better because the regular chips sunk to the bottom of the baking pan, which you can see that in this photo.    So, I will try this again and see if my changes would work.  Do you try new twists to regular baking and find whole new combinations for your dishes?

Your room and wedding cake reminds me of Great Expectations on PBS. I watched it on Netflix last night. It was wonderful and a tad spooky, just like your room. :) Love it.

Oh does this look yummy! Mr OP doesn't like me to venture too far from the norm when it comes to tried and true favorites.

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Your little accident with the cake turned out very nicely, I would say. I like the touch of posies on the top. Thanks for sharing at my HOME and have a wonderful weekend, Sherry.
