A Case of the Lazies and Kit Kat Cake is Pretty Awesome!

Hi! Happy whatever the heck day it is!

Ugh, have I had a case of the lazies!  Every day I'd think "hmm...maybe I should do a blog post about "x y z" and then never get around to it. I can't believe it's been over two weeks since I've done a blog post!

Thank you Ron and Biz for reaching out to make sure everything was okay.  You guys are the best!

So, what has been going on over in my neck of the woods?  My brothers and I celebrated my Mom's birthday on Saturday.  It was much more low key than previous years.  Instead of making a big dinner, we ordered pizza and ate on styrofoam plates.  It was pretty awesome.  No clean up and everyone enjoyed the pizza.  Love it!

I put myself in charge of the cake because there's been this amazing-looking cake going around the web that I just had to try.  It's called the Kit Kat Cake.  It looks way harder than it is, which makes it even more awesome.  It was a big hit!

Ready for how "difficult" this is?  Make a cake and ice it.  I used chocolate cake with chocolate icing because it's my mom's favorite.  After you're done icing it, take an entire bag of Kit Kats and break them apart, standing them upright against the icing.  Once you are done the Kit Kat layer, take an entire bag of M&M's and dump them on top of the cake.  Tie it with a bow and you've got yourself a Kit Kat cake.  It was delicious!

The birthday girl was happy to have all of her children and grandchildren in one place and we were happy to celebrate with her.

Question of the Day:
Which do you prefer?  Chocolate or vanilla cake?

Until next time!
