What does my striped chocolate cake remind you of???🎂🤔 I thought it looked like a circus tent (in a good way), my husband said it reminded him of a giant peppermint! 😅 The cake itself is fluffy and beyond moist, covered in creamy chocolate and vanilla Swiss buttercream, and yes there is a secret ingredient!

Can you guess what sign I am by looking at my Caprese salad??🤔😆 I went a bit crazy on this one I know, but I had a vision!

Too messy?🤣 Head over to the blog (link in bio, search “caprese”) for my much simpler, but maybe just as beautiful, version.🎊 #heirloomtomatoes #caprese #basil #mozzarella
