entertaining / dream cake

we threw my cousins a little combined birthday party this past weekend and bobette and angela came up with this super easy and pretty and delicious cake.

we call it a dream cake in our family- and for good reason. all it is is layers of chocolate cake (you can do a box or your favorite chocolate cake recipe), with thick whipped cream in between. they tried out a 'naked' dream cake for the first time, and didn't put the whipped cream on the outside of the cake, so that you could see each layer. they topped it with pink and orange rock candy and a simple homemade sign and voila- the easiest birthday cake ever.
