FIESTA!


Our Cinco de Mayo Party in Mesa was a "hit"...
 get it, a hit (because we hit the pinata).


Reachel helping herself to a healthy scoop of Vanilla bean
 ice cream to top the hot Mexican Chocolate cake! 



Notice Claire's hand on her bottle. 
 It NEVER left her sight- she was so excited to claim that
root beer as her very own.


Mexican Chocolate Cake:

3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp salt
6 Tbsp cocoa powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
(mix ingredients together)
Add:
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tsp Mexican vanilla
2 tsp vinegar
2 cups cold water

Mix well. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes

This recipe makes two basic circular cakes. 
 I layered mine adding chocolate sauce 
recipe is as follows:
1 cup semi sweet chocolates
1/4 canola oil
or
1/4 heavy whipping cream
add strawberries and cream and you have one hot cake!
