This month the pick was chocolate. It could be truffle, milk, white or dark. I didn’t know what to make. I have not made many bundts in my life. I am excited to experiment!! I wanted to do a white chocolate one but saved that for Valentine’s Day for you, so stick around for that!! I wanted it for my birthday cake!! I didn’t see anyone else in the kitchen making me one!! I wanted something special!!
So I went for a rich chocolate bundt cake. I added in pecans on the top and decided to go the Rocky Road route but didn’t know how to incorporate the marshmallows. I knew they would just melt right into the cake if it was baked and possibly leave little holes behind. Hmmm, that wouldn’t be good. So I came up with a marshmallow glaze that worked great. You can serve it warm over the bundt and it would be fabulous. A small scoop of ice cream along with it and it was amazing. I was very happy how my cake turned out and I hope you all try it too!
Happy Birthday to me!!
