Hi All,

First off- I just want to say sorry for being so MIA -only a Supper Sunday post last week?! *hangs head in shame*. But to make it up to you, I will be posting every day this week! and since I have already missed yesterday.., I will be putting up two posts today! But enough with my lackadaisical posting schedule- and on to the post topic today!

For this Tipsy Tuesday, what better topic than a 19th birthday bash- which is most definitely a tipsy event! Last Friday I hosted a surprise birthday for one of my friend’s 19th which included:

A little bit of this:

A little bit of this:

 (as per usual the bats were dressed for the occasion with party hats & cupcakes)

And a whole lot of this:

Which lead to this….

Overall there was a ton of fun to be had- which ended, of course in trip to the club for some dancing! 🙂
As a little side note- this is probably one of the most delicious cakes I have ever made. 
 (I do believe that my icing cursive is better than my on-paper cursive..)

The cake itself is Black Magic Cake, found on Allrecipes- which I can highly recommend!

Then the filling is a chocolate ganache that was simply 12 oz of dark chocolate melted with 1 cup of whipping cream.

But the ultimate best part is the cream cheese frosting (a signature of all my birthday cakes growing up), which is simply 8oz of cream cheese, 1/2 cup of butter, juice of 1/2 a lemon and icing sugar to taste (about 2-3 cups) all whipped together! MMM- and really good for colouring and decorating! I promise this frosting is good for all cakes- not just carrot cake! And it was definitely a huge hit at the party!

Hope you are also having a wonderfully Tipsy Tuesday!
