This post was brought to you by my husband, since this is was my birthday cake. You don't think I would actually make my own cake now, do you? Last year my hubby did a fabulous job on my cake, making this chocolate cherry cake roll completely from scratch. This year I went easy on him and told him I wanted a chocolate pound cake with peanut butter frosting and since it's really easy to make a pound cake from cake mix and pudding mix he didn't have to slave in the kitchen like he did last year. I found the recipe for the cake online at the Duncan Hine's website. When I pulled the cake mix out the cupboard we had by some perfect accident actually bought the Duncan Hine's cake mix and the recipe actually turned out to be right on the box. I got the idea for the peanut butter glaze Pixelated Crumb.
