Mexican Chocolate Cake #CakeSliceBakers

 For my April Cake Slice Bakers cake, I let my family vote because I truly could not decide.  It was unanimous - they needed chocolate cake!  The Mexican Chocolate Cake definitely delivered on a nice chocolatey taste.  The recipes has you add cinnamon and a bit cayenne, which I was a little concerned about so only added half of the amount called for. I did not need to worry.  I could have added the full amount and even my youngest would have enjoyed the flavor.  The cinnamon balanced nicely with the chocolate.



The recipe produced a moist cake with just the right amount of frosting.  







Each month The Cake Slice Bakers are offered a selection of cakes from the current book we are baking through. This year it is Little Everyday Cakes by Candace Floyd. We each choose one cake to bake, and then on the 20th - never before - we all post about our cake on our blogs. There are a few rules that we follow, but the most important ones are to have fun and enjoy baking & eating cakes!

Follow our Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest pages where you can find all of our cakes, as well as inspiration for many other cakes. You can also click on the thumbnail pictures below to take you to each of our cakes. If you have a blog and are interested in joining The Cake Slice Bakers and baking along with us, please send an email to thecakeslicebakers at gmail dot com for more details.

The Cake Slice Bakers also have a new Facebook group called The Cake Slice Bakers and Friends. This group is perfect for those who do not have a blog but want to join in the fun and bake through this book.
