Blue Ribbon Winning Chocolate Cake

May 1st, 2015 by Desiree Smith

We’ll start with Marilyn from Pink Martinis and Pearls, who has fond memories of watching her mother bake in the kitchen. Every birthday was celebrated with a homemade cake and one day, her mother made a chocolate cake that has since earned the title of “best ever in all the land”. This cake has even won 2 blue ribbons at county fairs! But before I steal Marilyn’s thunder, I’ll let her tell the story herself, as she does it so well.

Visit her blog post here and try her award-winning chocolate cake recipe to see if it truly is the best chocolate cake ever. It looks beyond amazing to me!




For over 100 years, mothers have had a special day that honors the care, love and guidance they provide to their children. They say it takes a village to raise a child, and many of us are blessed with more than one special woman in our life – aunts, sisters, grandmothers, friends, mentors. In celebration of Mother’s Day, we’d like to share a story each day from now until May 10 from our Wilton Test Kitchen as well as our Wilton Sweet Treat Team honoring the females who have inspired them most.
