Hershey’s “Perfectly Chocolate” Chocolate Cake

There was 3-4hrs of waiting time for our Tiramisu Cake to be ready, and Karen found this recipe behind the bottle of the Hershey’s Cocoa Powder, so we decide to follow this recipe while waiting and make the Hershey’s “Perfectly Chocolate” Chocolate Cake!

So we got our ingredients ready for this and started to bake the cake in the meantime, plus with some help from Jennifer, Karen’s sister. We baked “Perfectly Chocolate” Chocolate Cake but did not do the “Perfectly Chocolate” Chocolate frosting.

Ta dah! Surprisely, this cake turned out not bad too! 🙂

Everything went quite smoothly today. This only took us about 1 hour of time.

And Jovan, Karen’s nephew was at home, so we spend some time playing with this little cute kid… he is really cute and such a joy at home, really smart little boy

So adorable, isn’t he? 😛
