My husband and his two brothers hosted a little party at a favorite old pizza joint for his parent's 50th Anniversary last night. It was really fun -- we saw some of his aunts and uncles and the little kids ran around guzzling soda pop and eating popcorn. The main course was, of course, the pizza that this little shop is know for (they also serve some German food and the scent of sauerkraut in the first floor dining room smelled wonderful), but we wanted to have a little dessert, too. Doug ordered a cake from a favorite family bakery and I baked some cupcakes so the littles would have something fun to eat. We brought some little individual ice cream cups and everyone enjoyed all the treats.
I used the recipe for Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Cake and Frosting and decorated with M&Ms, Good and Plenty, candy hearts and various other sprinkles.
