I like sheet cakes, they are simple, easy, not fancy!

I don’t like fancy food…

oh, I haven’t told you about my pole dancing adventures in a long time. Well, since I started practicing lots of things have changed. I’ll make a list:

1. I’ve gotten much better

2. I’ve learned a lot of new tricks: the Gemini, Scorpio, Cross Knee Release, Butterfly, Superman, Flag,…

3. Everyday I discovered new bruises on my tights and abdomen

4. I broke my toe nail about 15 times (and I am not joking)

5. I’ve start fantasizing about me performing at Club Good Heart in LA

6. I’ve been tempted to do a couple of spins using the poles on the trains that I take everyday to go to work because……..well, when you are a pole dancer any pole would do…

7. I have decided to get certified and start teaching

8. I have decided to open a pole dancing school in my hometown

Maybe one day, I’ll be posting some of my pole dancing picture here….

for now, let’s focus on making blackberry chocolate sheet cake.

While the cake is baking go ahead and make the frosting.

Beat up all the ingredients until creamy

Once the cake is cooked and cooled, cut it up into small rectangulars

Spread each rectangular with frosting
