Reese's Peanut Butter Cream Cake

Sometimes there simply are no words to convey the emotion. Today is such a day. So what do I do?  I bond with my Kitchenaid. I've already made these,these, and these, and found places to deliver them. However, on a day where wrapped candy treats prevail in the lives of children, my season has changed.
My focus today is of great reflection. Today, my freshman in college received some much anticipated mail. Within this envelope is a call to action that comes with great responsibility.
Reflectively, this envelope represents not just one decision, but countless little ones.  Each decision following or forming a path. Sometimes the path seemed well marked and seemingly easy to follow and at other times -  more difficult where steps to proceed were small, yet well defined.
As we journey through life,we are daily asked to go and do. Choosing so, and without exact knowledge of where our temporal path will lead; we walk by faith. And as our decisions clear a path that leads not only to our own happiness, but also the joy of countless others, we can pause, reflect, and celebrate. 
Today we will celebrate with this Reese's Peanut Butter Cream Cake:

Reese's Peanut Butter Cream Cake

Begin by making Yummy In My Tummy Chocolate Cake, omitting the chocolate chips.  Cool completely. 

For the Peanut Butter Cream:

8 oz.  cream cheese
2/3 cup peanut butter
1 cup powdered sugar
16oz. tub of Cool Whip

Whip together cream cheese and peanut butter.  Add powdered sugar and beat until well blended.  Fold in Cool Whip. 

Layer cake and cream as desired.  Frost with remaining cream.  Chill thoroughly.  Garnish with your favorite chocolate sauce or ganache and chopped Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
