The great chocolate cake swindle.

Little dog has a sweet tooth. Ok, that's an understatement. He has a sweet mouth, head, upper body, lower body and soul. If I would allow him to live on a diet of chocolate and ice cream, he'd happily comply. Wait, he'd want bacon too, but that's about it.

Honestly I have a bit of a sweet tooth too, and being a good cook makes it pretty easy to whip up a tasty treat for no reason at all. I recently discovered the easiest and yummiest cake recipe ever. It uses only things I have in the pantry, and it makes a really nice cake. So I happened to have a few pieces of cake in the fridge tonight, and doled them out after dinner.

Lately Little Dog has discovered that he can get more cake if he goes from mom to dad asking, "Can I have a taste of yours?" even before he tastes his own. We jokingly refer to this as the toddler diet since he can easily talk you out of half of your cake, saving you not only the enjoyment of your own dessert, but about half the calories.

We've learned that if we want our own cake, you'd better eat quickly. So tonight Little Dog headed over to Mr. Dog and asked him "Can I have a bite of you cake?" Mr. Dog informed him, he had no cake.
Little Dog paused, considered this and asked, "Are you sad?"

Be real nice and I'll post the cake recipe on From Mosh Pits to Mashed Potatoes, but for that I'll need some blog comments. Blackmail you say? Maybe, but I'm a comments junkie, and I need a fix.

I have that sort of sweet tooth too. When I was little I used to dip my french fries in my milk shake. Then I stopped eating fast food, so now I dip pretzels in frozen yogurt. That salty-sweet mix is divine.

That is too cute. Your little tyke and I would get along just fine!
And you and I too... you know if you make cake just for the heck of it!

I laughed out loud when I read that he asked, "Are you sad?" My guy is the same age, and when he knows he's been naughty and we're not happy with his behavior, he will ask us, "Are you sad?"

Which of course makes it impossible to be upset with him when I'm trying to stifle my giggles. Damn kids :)

LD has great taste. Cake is good! we had the best dulche de leche cake at a birthday party this weekend. great thing was the birthday girl could not decide between princesses and pirates so the cake was decorated with both!

First I have to say that I was going to comment and ask you for that recipe; you didn't really need to ask for comments! :)

I used to have a horrible sweet tooth, but it has dwindled as I've gotten older. Chocolate is still my weakness and any cake that is easy and yummy wins in my book.

Are your kids hilarious 100% of the time? Because, really - just seeing you have posted something, I am already starting to crack up because I just know it'll cause me to snort whatever drink I have through my nose as I crack up :)
