Here's how I got my kids to eat their supper last night:

The cake recipe is Chocolate-Almond Souffle Cake from the September issue of Rachael Ray magazine. This one is really similar.

For the frosting, I mixed a half stick of softened butter with a cup and a half of powdered sugar, a little cocoa powder and then added just a bit of chocolate milk and 1/2ish teaspoon of vanilla. Heavenly! It made lots of frosting -- plenty for the cake. And no food left on the plates last night, either. Yay!

Oh, that cake looks really good...was that for dessert? Yum!!! At first I thought you were doing something a la Jessicac Seinfeld in her cookbook " Deceptively Delicious"...where she has recipes that hide the veggies in other stuff, so kids will eat it and still get healthy food...and I was wondering how you snuck the veggies into the cake!!!...but I was wrong ;) :) :) That cake does look good, especially the frosting!!! have a great weekend. love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

We used to add applesauce, pureed carrots, shredded zucchini, etc, to all kinds of things to eat healthy. I had one son who would literally sort out a casserole into little piles all around his plate. He ate everything, he just took 'don't touch the peas' to extreme stages!
