Easy Chocolate Cake With Strawberries, Raspberries and Candy bars !

 Good Morning !
Last week was one of my sons 21st birthday .. So I came up with this cake full of strawberries, raspberries and hershey bars ! I made a regular devils food chocolate cake in 2- 8 inch round pans.
 I sliced up a container of strawberries and left a few whole ones to place on the top. I added the raspberries and about 1/8 cup sugar .. I chopped the hershey bars I used 8 of them into small pieces.I beat a carton of heavy whipping cream until it was stiff in my mixer.When the cake was cooled, I added 1/2 of the strawberries and raspberries, to the top of the first layer. Then dolloped on some of the whip cream, then added the rest of the strawberries and raspberries ..!/2 of the chopped candy bars, more whip cream , then the other layer of cake.
 I used the whip cream then to frost the whole outside of the cake ..then added the rest of the chopped hershey bars and the whole strawberries for decoration. It tasted amazing and was so pretty too !
My daughter and I also made a trip to the Good Will store.. I found 2 different sets of great winter salad/desert plates, one is the 12 days of Christmas.. the other is snowmen.. A really cute salt and pepper snowman set , Santa mug , the cute little oval mirror will be a chalkboard.. and a rusty lantern ..  
 I spent $13.00 for it all , looked up the 2 dish sets on Ebay , and the snowmen plates were $19.99 each ! The 12 days of Christmas I found for $29.00 .. I think I got some really cute things !

 We had another snowstorm yesterday .. I had to enlist everyone to help shovel :) The youngest grandson loves the snow!
