I can take 0 credit for this post title because my friend Aneri themes her birthday based off of all the puns she can make with her own name. This year with all the ruckus that ever entertaining Donald Trump has caused, it only felt right to have her birthday be "Make Anerica Great Again." PSA: Please do your research before this election season :)

Also... I HAD to include the video for this song because 1) Katrina Kaif looks gorgeous and 2) it's so damn catchy that it's become my new obsession.

For this birthday cake, I thought it'd be fun to embody one of a classic drink in the form of a cake.

So recently it was one of my closest friend's, whom we lovingly call Lil Dicky, birthdays. Can't say she's entirely fond of that nickname, but that's 1/2 the point of nicknames anyways. In that spirit, here's some Lil' Dicky for you to listen to while reading this post.

After scouring the internet and Pinterest for recipes, and making myself extremely hungry in the process, I landed on this glorious monstrosity.

I based my recipe of that cake but made a bunch of modifications to make it more "adult-friendly." Enjoy because we sure did!

I know. I know. The title and the song I'm telling you to listen while reading this post don't match, but I felt I needed to up my Drake game a bit. Plus, now every time I think of Drake, I picture him doing his little "dance" over and over again. It brings me a LOT of joy. I also love the SNL parody of it but that's not really relevant.

First off, HAPPY NATIONAL CHOCOLATE CAKE DAY! I was not aware that this was an ACTUAL holiday but I'm not gonna complain. I firmly believe that everyday should be National Chocolate Cake Day! But hey, I'll take one day a year.

Second, it's your lucky week! You get TWO whole posts from me! I've been sick since Sunday, so I've been vegetating on my couch, watching a few too many chick flicks, all whilst drinking the world's supply of
