Xtra Special Cake

I made this Birthday Cake...with my 9 yr. Old, for her friend with the same name as her, who works in the Path Mark .  Chocolate Xtra Special Cake Blanketed in Cream Cheese Frosting,  and Caringly decorated with precious pearl pink gumpaste hearts finished with a Frilly flower! This is the perfect size for a girly tea party. I cut 8 nice size slices.
This Xtra special cake recipe, brings special memories for me. My children and I used the recipe for countless birthdays, bake sales, holidays and events and learning ways to use letter X!
