I started by writing my CINDY in exaggerated bubble letters. Then I rotated the paper until I found the direction that looked most like a cake. I made a few adjustments to help each letter look like a separate layer in the cake. I outlined the letters in dark brown, colored in with a lighter brown, and then added dark chocolate sprinkles on top before coloring in the candles and the plate. It reminds me of my hamburger name art project.
Because I am convinced that you can buy virtually anything on Amazon, I checked to see if you could buy a chocolate cake. (Affiliate links follow.) There are quite a few cake mixes (these molten lava cakes look delish), as well as things that aren't chocolate cake but either smell like it or look like it. I was starting to think there might not be cakes. I got distracted by this truffle sampler, but when I did continued to scroll, I did start finding actual chocolate cakes. You didn't let me down, Amazon!
