Happy birthday Jen!

My cousin's fiance turned 40 today, and he asked me to make a cake with some of her favorite things.  He asked for daisies and a "big, fat, cartoonish bumblebee."  He also asked for chocolate and raspberry flavors.  I made my favorite chocolate cake recipe with chocolate buttercream, and a fresh raspberry sauce filling.  I was very happy with how it turned out and she loved it.  It really is amazing how many flaws decorations can cover.

Here are some cake pops I made to try them out with a more dense cake batter and rolling them in sprinkles and nonpariels.  I didn't want to waste the chocolate, so I also made some chocolate-dipped marshmallows, and a big giant milk chocolate non-pariel.
