Chocolate Ombre Cake on bethcakes.com!

New post on bethcakes.com! I made this cake a few weeks ago for my grandfather's birthday. He requests chocolate cake every year, and I tried to come up with something I hadn't done already. You can only make so many chocolate cakes before you run out of ideas, am I right? But my mom suggested different shades of chocolate frosting, and I thought, OMG, ombre! I'm obsessed with ombre, but the tall, 4+ layer ombre cakes I've seen on other blogs and Pinterest have always seemed like a lot of work to me. I mean, they're gorgeous, but I can see myself messing up something like that. This cake was super easy, though. No food coloring involved or anything messy. Just cocoa powder. Check out the whole post for the recipes and instructions!

New post on bethcakes.com! I originally wrote it for the MyRecipes.com blog, but decided to write some more about it and my new internship on my own blog. So check out both of those posts! If you want the recipes, the link to it is in the MyRecipes.com post.

These pies are so incredibly easy, no bake, and perfect for snacks at parties. The phyllo shells come prepackaged 15 to a pack, so in no time, you could have 30 cute, tiny pies! The filling is chocolate pudding, so you can mix it up and use whichever pudding mix you want. So easy!

chocolate peanut butter dirt pudding on bethcakes.com

There's a new post on my new blog! A while back, I made this Dirt recipe, which is really just crushed Oreos and a fluffy cream cheese pudding. In this new post, I've revamped it with chocolate and peanut butter. I thought I knew all of the different versions of Oreos that are out there, but I didn't realize until I made this new version that there are Peanut Butter Creme Filled Oreos! What!? I actually thought, They should make Oreos with peanut butter in the middle. And then I went to the store and there they were. Don't you wish everything worked that way? This recipe is perfect for the summer because it doesn't require you to turn on your oven and heat up your house. It's super easy and everyone will love it!
