I just wanted to let you know that yes, you can survive on chocolate cake alone. [If it's good chocolate cake.]
I had wanted to post this cake last week but time just got away from me. Most of it has been spent trying to write an introduction speech about myself.
I think it's funny that I can't do this simple task. Maybe I should just take excerpts from my blog and call it a day. Right?
I find this task so daunting. I mean, I write about myself here all the time. Yet, if you remove the "cake" part; I find myself at a loss for words.
Last night I stayed up until 4:00am trying to write the speech. All I have to show for the all-nighter is a batch of cupcakes and a pile of crumpled up index cards.
Okay, I still don't have a speech but I do have a slice of kick-*ss chocolate cake left. The cake is moist and intensely chocolate. The icing is silky, luxurious, and divine. For the cake I used Valrhona cocoa and for the icing I used Valrhona chocolate buttons for melting. Trust me, use good chocolate for the recipe it makes a world of difference.
