Whiskey Chocolate Chip Praline Cake

Hello, my name is Sarah. I enjoy movies, dancing, and long walks on the beach.
But most of all I enjoy sitting by the fire eating cake.

Not just any cake. whiskey chocolate chip praline cake to be exact.
That’s what i’ve been doing a lot lately since it’s been so cold.
Who needs a boyfriend when you’ve got cake?
Cake won’t forget to call you. Cake won’t flirt with other girls.
For those of you single ladies out there, if you’re dreading Valentines day, don’t. Just think, with no boyfriend, you don’t have to share your cake! More for you!
All i’m saying is cake is amazing. Cake makes everything better.
 Now let’s all go bake a cake and enjoy the sweet goodness!
