First Vendor Show!

I just had my first vendor show this weekend. Although I wasn't as successful as I had hoped I still had fun. I did win some lovely candles. I am looking forward to more vendor shows. Check out my Mom.

Recipe of the Month - November 2010


While eating this cake, imagine an angel dressed in all white with horns or a devil

dressed in red with a halo resting on top of the horns. This cake is yummy on its own. If

you need to be good then eat it with strawberries. If you want to be bad, then eat it with

homemade chocolate whipped cream. And if you want to be even badder, then eat it with

chocolate whipped cream and strawberries.

When I was working on this recipe I had a few names for it and I wasn’t sure

which one to use. My husband, who loves comic books and super heroes, came up with

this name. Thanks hubby!

1 box angel food cake mix
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, roughly chopped
1 teaspoon flour
1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced
1 cup heavy cream
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa powder

In a small bowl, mix the chocolate chips with the flour. Prepare cake batter as directed on package. Add the chocolate chips to the cake batter and bake and cool according to the cake directions.
To make the chocolate whipped cream, use an electric mixer to beat the cream until soft peaks form. Slowly add the sugar and the cocoa powder and beat until it is combined. Serve the cake with strawberries and chocolate whipped cream.
Serves 12.
