Chocolate pound cake

I got a new bundt pan for my birthday so I decided to make a chocolate pound cake.  I didn’t think the size of the pan was smaller than a 10” tube pan and it ended up overflowing in the oven.  When it was finished baking I cut off the overflowing part and then flipped it over.  It looks very pretty!  I am bringing it to my company picnic today so I don’t know how it tastes yet, but I am sure it will be yummy.

I got this apron while shopping in Lake Geneva last week.  Isn’t it cute!

I should have realized right away that there was too much batter in the pan!

I dont know what it is but I love cute aprons too! If I had lots of money I would probably have a ton..funny thing is - I very rarely put one on. My favorite one is the style like yours but mine is old - I got it at a antique shop. World Market has had some really cute ones....I resisted...but it was hard!
