It has been some days that I posted a recipe, I have been busy with planning a party for my Youngest son graduation.
Just needed to focus on that and I definitely needed some days off from baking after the party!
Today I made my favorite chocolate sheet cake, topped with a gooey milk chocolate frosting, it is so delicious!
The frosting is made with milk chocolate it taste like a gooey caramel chocolate frosting, it is so delicious!
The chocolate sheet cake and the frosting together are just heavenly, it is perfect for any party, This cake I made for all the birthday parties for my kids when they were younger and also for my son graduation party as this is his favorite chocolate cake.
For birthday parties for kids I would add candy on top, and candles, it is an easy cake to make and incredibly delicious!
