Thoughts from the kitchen of an everyday cook.

Chocolate Eclair Birthday Cake

Today is my big bro's birthday! He asked for a chocolate eclair cake, and I'm so glad he did. 


This cake was truly a family affair. Our Aunt Cheryl used to make it for parties, and we all loved it growing up. When I got married, my cousin Julie put together a really, really awesome gift: a family cookbook full of recipes from my grandma, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Having those family favorites all in one place is incredible. My cousin Lisa had given her the chocolate eclair cake recipe for the cookbook, and it tasted just like I remembered. Yum!
