Death By Chocolate!

For date night last week, Brian and I decided to try out one of our latest recipes. We LOVE to watch America's Test Kitchen, and they recently did this yummy old fashioned chocolate cake so we decided to give it a try. I imagined it would be the kind of cake that Marie off of "Everybody Loves Raymond" would make. I won't even begin to tell you the fat content in the frosting alone, let alone the cake! Of course it was going to be good! I didn't know if it was going to be worth all of the work that went into it making it from scratch and doing some slightly complicated procedures for the batter and the frosting. IT WAS WORTH IT! This cake was rediculous! I am glad that it is gone now so that I don't obsess over when I will be able to have my next slice. It is also probably the reason I am 5 lbs heavier than the last time you saw me :) Still worth it!Here is the finished product.
The long awaited slice...............
It was getting late, and I think all of that chocolate was getting to Brian,
What a cute couple!

Isn't it the best when the stuff you slave over tastes exactly the way you wanted it too?! Way to go! And Brian- can your tongue be any bigger? You friggin' look like Gene Simons - hee hee! Yes, Mitch knows I wrote this- he's laughing.
