Birthday Cake Bread Pudding - Recipe - National Bread Pudding Week

     This week is National Bread Pudding Week.  It is quite right to have a whole week dedicated to bread pudding because of the endless variations there are.  Some are sweet, some savory.  This one is a special creation and actually uses a day old birthday cake, frosting and all.  Use a classic yellow or white cake with a chocolate frosting and you are set!  The frosting forms little chocolate rivulets in the nooks and crannies while the cake is moistened with the eggy custard.  Perfection!
