What to eat Wednesday- Chocolate Cake Supreme

I am sneaking in here to partially post Luke's birthday cake. I started taking photos of the cake. I took some half frosted, then started taking them after the cake was all finished. Then I made a big mistake. I took a lick of extra frosting. One little faux pa- and now I have chocolate frosting remnant on my lens. I am sure Jay is shaking his head, saying "pitiful."
Next time I get to see The Pioneer Woman, I think I will ask her how many times she has gotten food on her lens, and what she does about it.

This is a seven layer cake perfect for a boy who turned SEVEN today. I have not made this cake in years. I first had this for my 22nd birthday- and then made it that year for Jay's birthday. I don't think I have made it since. (Only because of the lack of freezer space!) It was passed to me by the family that I was living with when Jay and I met. She said this was their secret cake. I hope I am not spilling the beans by sharing it.
Really the only thing difficult about making this is having access to a freezer space. Making sure you have enough space in your freezer to put the cake in and still shut the door and not squish the cake!
