Birthdays, Big or Small

It is a new year and, although two months have gone by, there are many days of Birthdays left to celebrate this year. A Birthday is something special and should be celebrated, however, they don’t need to be big, fancy parties every year. Do something small, but still exciting. Decorations, dinner, cake, presents, a few balloons, and for kids the little party hats. Something fun, but something simple.

Instead of forking out all sorts of money to buy a fancy cake from a Dairy Queen or a bakery, why not try to make one yourself. Cakes are actually very simple to make when following a recipe carefully. Here is a simple recipe to try that could help you save money to celebrate a certain someone’s special day.

The Ultimate Chocolate Cake: (


1. In a bowl, combine the first seven ingredients; mix well. Stir in chocolate chips. Coat a 10-in. fluted tube pan with cooking spray and dust with flour; add batter.
