Chocolate Oreo Cake

I am about 6 months late for this post but oh well. Story of my life.

I don’t make cake often. When I do it because it’s someone’s birthday. Or it was requested.

This special cake was requested by my babygirl, Alyssa, who turned 10 in September. I am looking at these photos and thinking back and having all the feels and tears that my first baby is already 10 years old.

I cannot believe it. Where did the time go?!?! How was it that more than 10 years ago I had a child and now she’s turning into a bratty pre-teen?!?

Anyway, even though she turned 10 we didn’t actually have a big party for her. We gave her a choice, like we do every year, to either have a party or go somewhere fun with the family… kind of like a mini vacation. Sometimes she picks party and sometimes she picks mini-vacation. This year she really wanted to go to Dave & Busters.

Well, we don’t live anywhere close to a Dave & Busters. The closest to us is in Chicago. So I made her this Chocolate Oreo Cake to celebrate her actual birthday, which landed on a Wednesday last year, and told her we would take her to Dave & Busters on the next weekend the hubby had time off.

He happened to have a free weekend that next upcoming weekend and off we went. Her and the hubby played as many video games as they could in about 4 hours while I just hung out and watched.

I’m not much of a video game person, so going to play video games all day wasn’t really my cup of tea. But I still had a good time and we went and took her for a celebratory birthday dinner afterwards.

Plus, the day wasn’t about me. It was about her and she thoroughly enjoyed her 10th birthday and birthday weekend.
