Today is a fun day here at A Savory Feast! My blogging friends and I are throwing a virtual baby shower for Madison from A Joyfully Mad Kitchen. Madison is expecting her second baby boy any day now, so we are celebrating by sharing some tasty baby shower foods.
Of course, cake is a must for a baby shower! This Chocolate Chip Snack Cake is so easy to make. It’s great for a boy or girl baby shower or just about any party or celebration.
I tested out a couple different cake recipes to get just the right consistency for this cake. It’s a light, fluffy yellow cake that has just the right amount of sweetness. I am always up for something chocolate, and the chocolate chips in this cake add just a hint of chocolate.
The frosting is made from cream cheese, which is my favorite kind! It has such a great flavor. After spreading on the frosting, the cake is topped with even more mini chocolate chips. Yum!
How to Keep Chocolate Chips from Sinking to The Bottom of a Cake
There’s a special trick to adding in the chocolate chips so that they don’t all sink to the bottom of the cake. Take a little bit of flour and coat the chocolate chips in it before mixing them into the cake batter.
If you are throwing a shower or party, a sheet cake is a great way to save time and make things easier on yourself. You don’t have to worry about creating a layer cake or taking time to do a lot of frosting or decorating.
If you are looking to make a fancy layer cake instead, I recommend trying my Strawberry Chocolate Ganache Layer Cake!
