OY VEY.....I'm feeling grEY


And not because I'm pregnant....I'm one of the lucky ones that doesn't get morning sickness. Now that I typed that baby #5 is going to make me sicker than a dog.

I'm sick b/c I ate too much cake batter and mocha icing! You don't understand. This isn't from a mix from a box (that stuff isn't bad either) but this cake recipe is to die for.

I'm a Southern Girl and love my sheet cakes. My in laws come over every Wednesday and I make dinner and dessert! Again I am making the Chocolate Marble Sheet cake! (southern living oct 2008) This cake knocks my socks off!
The recipe is simple to follow....and within a few hours you have a cake that will make people worship the ground you walk upon!

The batter is sickly good. Lils and I licked the bowl clean.....It's when I made the icing that I felt ill. I couldn't stop myself....I tried to spread as much of the icing as I could around the cake....I can't help it if some was left on the spoon and bowl. It's chocolate mocha for pete's sake.

Now I'm regretting it. I have a very active 16m old....and in a few minutes all 3 of the other kids will be coming home from school demanding snacks and attention. I'd like to curl and hurl!

I think I'll recover in time for dessert tonight though! ha ha

Dinner is Pasta E Fagioli (family circle oct 17, 09) and it's super quick and better than Olive Garden's!

I hope you get to feeling better soon. I have an addiction to any kind of icing...so I'm gonna steer clear of that one!
