Thinking of Valentine's and Chocolate Cake

Hello sweet friends !

Well, after our trip to Miami we are back home, happy although we are missing our kids, but specially baby Maxima who is simply adorable, talking in her half tongue and been a little mischievous. She sure entertained us grandparents to no end !

Our daughter Sofia and her hubby are coming tomorrow for the weekend with our older grandgirls, they are so sweet and such a delight to be with and have conversations as Victoria is a teenager already. Therefore, I baked a cake for them, for a bunch of chocolate lovers and grandma has to oblige to make memories, right ?

I also added my cupid couple just to remind us that Valentine's is just around the corner and I will bake a heart cake and set a table for the two of us.

Our 11 year old's birthday Cayetana, was last January 26, so in a way I am doing it for her specially. I will post a couple of family pics from Miami as well as  Cayetana's birthday too. I also loved her cake !

Ok, my chocolate cake came out fabulous and delish, I recommend anyone who adores chocolate, as it is a very rich one with black coffee too.
Look on Pinterest for the recipe.

"Chocolate and coffee Bundt Cake with Cranberry Glaze." 

The cake is in Spanish, it may be lost in translation when you look for it. Here is the link. Translate it all, it certainly is worth this very 'scrumptious chocolate delight.'

My cupid couple figurine in porcelain-bisque, gives my post, just the touch of Valentine's soon to be here.
This is a great Chocolate and coffee Cake, you must try. A hit with my daughter Sofia, hubby and grandgirls Victoria and Cayetana. We loved it too !

Really delish !

One of my favorite tea sets I own. The set is for eight place settings, teacups and saucers, dessert plates, a chocolate pot, a sugar bowl and creamer. 




Oh goodness! The first slice of cake was fun cause the girls wanted each first, so I gave it to their mother so they stopped yelling, lol.. 


Enjoying a few days with my little Maxima

Cayetana on her 11th. birthday. Her mother bought the cake and decorated it in such a fun and clever way with some donuts... isn't it adorable !

Later in the day she had ten friends from school for lunch and to help her blow the candles and to sing for her 'Happy Birthday.'

Thank you dear friends for your sweet and kind comments, you always make my day !

The recipe is in Spanish; here is the link and you can translate the entire recipe to make it. It's worth it, it's an amazing cake !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.
