On the Menu: Caramel Sundae Chocolate Cake



On the Menu: Caramel Sundae Chocolate Cake This cake is one of the best cakes that I have had in a while. It is so easy to make because it starts with a box cake mix, which means I don't have to measure out so many ingredients. I used the Dark Chocolate Fudge cake mix to get that richer chocolate flavor, but you can use your favorite chocolate cake mix. Also, I cooled the cake completely before serving, but it would also be delicious served warm but you would have to be quick about serving so that the ice cream wouldn't melt. Seriously what's better than chocolate, cake, and ice cream?

Ingredients
Box Chocolate Cake Mix (I used Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge)
Small Box Instant Chocolate Pudding
4 Eggs
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
1/2 cup Water
Jar of Caramel Ice Cream Topping
Jar of Marshmallow Ice Cream Topping
Vanilla Ice Cream



Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a bundt pan with nonstick spray.
2. Mix the cake mix and pudding together. Then add 4 eggs and mix. Next mix the oil and water in.
3. Pour into prepared bundt pan and bake for 30-40 minutes until a knife when inserted into the cake comes out clean. Then turn out of pan and cool on a wire rack.
4. When completely cooled move the cake to the dish you will serve/store it in. Pour the 1/2 of the marshmallow topping onto the cake and then 1/3 of the caramel.
5. Serve each slice with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and more toppings if you desire, you still have part of the marshmallow topping and the caramel topping that you can add to top the ice cream.

Happy Weekend!


Happy Weekend!
I am always so happy to see Friday arrive, but this week it just doesn't seem like it should already be Friday. I guess it's because my week was different than normal, as I wasn't in my class teaching on Monday and Tuesday. On Monday I attended a math conference with some other teachers from my school and surrounding districts. I had a fun day with the teacher that I hung out with. Then the weather kept us from having school on Tuesday. Even this morning we had a one hour delay because of the weather, so I got a little more sleep than usual.

If the weather doesn't turn ugly, this promises to be a fun and busy weekend for me. Tomorrow Tracy and I are going to go shopping. We don't really have many stores we want to go too, but it will be nice to get away from home. Plus we are going to meet up with some friends and a catch a movie. Sunday I would like to try a couple of DIY projects that look easy and don't require a ton of materials. Even though they seem like they will be easy, I'm not a crafty person so it could turn out horribly wrong. As for tonight I am off to art class and then to the homecoming basketball game at the school that I teach at. The students were asking me to come tonight and I hope that I can make it. What are your weekend plans? I hope you have a great weekend!

Pineapple Print Tee (adorable!) / Shirtdress (effortless) / Agate Bookend / Collar Necklace / Espadrilles / Cuff Ring / Pearl Ring (only $45!) / Pineapple Clutch (love this!) / Backpack

I love, love, love my Friday Favorites this week. I fell for pineapple prints last year and apparently my love has not faded. This pineapple print tee and clutch are adorable. Plus, both pieces are under $100. This shirtdress has a great ease to it and I could easily see myself wearing it all spring with sandals or some great espadrilles.
