Baby Quilt Finish

A few weeks ago I shared the beginnings of a baby quilt....well, between ripping up carpet and repainting the living room, I've managed to get this cute little number hand quilted and the binding sewn on.  While I am pleased with the outcome, I do need to work on the evenness of my quilting stitches. 

Practice makes perfect so now on to the next one....this one is all sandwiched together and ready to quilt.

Chocolate Fudge Brownie Cake

I found this recipe on pinterest some time back and I've made it a couple of times now.  This time I changed it up a bit...just in the frosting part...I've included the pinterest link below the recipe.


1 box chocolate cake mix
1 box fudge brownie mix (9"x13" size mix)
4 eggs
1 1/4 cups water
1 cup oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Prepare a bundt pan by spraying with a non-stick cooking spray...I like *Baker's Joy.
Combine all ingredients in mixer bowl and mix well to combine thoroughly.  
Pour into prepared pan.
Bake 50-55 minutes.
Allow to cool for a bit before turning out of pan.

Melt 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate plus 4 tablespoons whipping cream, stir to smooth consistency.
Pour over cake.  As you can see, I topped with a handful of chopped pecans.
