You may be thinking, uhhh boyfriend?  Well this chocolate cake recipe comes with a story.  It starts out back when my husband was my boyfriend!  Ryan is probably the pickiest eater I have ever encountered.  When we met and he found out how much I love to cook he was worried to tell me that he only eats about 10 things…I’m not kidding.  He likes to rotate the same 10 or so meals and he’s happy with that.   In the back of my mind I really thought I could change his pallet, 4 years later…no such luck.

Thank goodness his food phobia doesn’t translate into the sweets department!  If I bake it, he’ll eat it.

About 3 months after we started dating, he asked me if I could make him a chocolate cake.  I excitedly said “of course!”  I immediately got to work while he watched some TV.  I didn’t let him come into the kitchen until it was complete.  This is an exact replica of the cake I made him.  I wish I took a picture of his face.  He told me he fully expected a Dunkan Hines sheet cake with premade Pillsbury frosting.  “Umm have you met me?”  He still tells people that story, and shows the original picture of that very cake.

Today while my hubby was playing hockey, I decided to whip up this cake for him as a treat.  It’s always my go to chocolate cake recipe, my favorite chocolate frosting, and who doesn’t love chocolate covered strawberries?!?  One thing you should know about me…you will never see one of those perfectly smooth decorated cakes from me.  I don’t have the patience!  I am always in awe of these absolutely flawless cakes I see on Pinterest.  I wish I had the knack for it.  I make sure my cakes taste good and look pretty nice, but they will never look perfect!

I hope you enjoy it as much as my hubby did that day.  It might be why he married me!
