One day our son insisted on having a green cake. Green?!

So we made one. I thought mint would be a good flavor for green, but I didn’t have any in my hands. But I had peppermint so I used it. With that chocolate goes well so I used it as the filling, and did a basic cream cheese frosting dyed orange.

Quite Halloween, though not so beautiful, but I was actually really surprised how good the cake tasted!
