Easy Birthday Cake

For Chiara’s birthday two weeks ago, I made Jamie Oliver’s Chocolate Fudge Cake, a super easy-to-make, indulgent dessert.  The girls and Richard liked it so much that I’m planning to do it again this Saturday when we have a belated celebration for the birthday girl.

We’re new to the tween party hosting so we’ll see how it goes.  The girls are pretty much just hanging out at the house with games and movie on hand.  I plan to do a low-key dinner fare with pizza and pasta, some lemonade and sparkling water bubblies, then the chocolate fudge cake for dessert.  Instead of doing party favors, I’ll just have a candy/chocolate bar where each guest can fill their goody bags with their chosen sweets, which I’ll have in various clear mason jars.

Let’s just hope I make it through the night without having to take too many Tylenol pills after hearing several girls squeal and giggle for a few hours.  Have a good weekend, everyone!
