Oakland Athletics Cake & Cupcakes

My brother's girlfriend, Julie asked me to make a special cake for her Mom's birthday...something delicious and fondant free.

Her Mom is a chocolate fan...and an Oakland A's fan.

Sports and Chocolate...smart lady.

The cake is chocolate fudge.

The filling is chocolate mousse with caramel.

The frosting is caramel swiss meringue buttercream.

I know my writing is a little off center...bummer.

At 6 months pregnant....It took everything in me not to cut a slice of this cake for myself.

I also made a dozen baseball cupcakes, some that spelled out the Birthday Girl's name.

Again, my writing is not awesome...I should have flattened the top of the buttercream first, lesson learned.

Happy Birthday Cheryl!
