I met the love of my life in high school. Tall, dark, and handsome, he teased me from across the room at a birthday party, tempting me to come closer. A shy girl, I blushed and looked away, but I eventually mustered up enough courage to walk across the room. I approached, smiling, and…
I took a really big bite.
He wasn’t the star QB of the football team or the drum major in the marching band—he was a piece of chocolate cake! 6 layers of moist cake with 6 layers of fudgy chocolate frosting… My idea of perfection!
But alas, the romance was not meant to be… The chocolate cake came from Costco, and I’m not a member! So we parted ways after the birthday celebration ended, never to see each other again.
Until last summer, when I discovered that my local grocery store sells individual slices of a 6-layer chocolate cake too! They aren’t quite as rich or fudgy, but at least I don’t need a membership just to buy a slice.
So to celebrate my blog’s new makeover, I knew I had to make my own decadent chocolate cake. And with frosting this fudgy, it’s a miracle any of it made it onto the cake… While waiting for the cake to bake, I ended up eating lots of the frosting with a spoon!
