Mmmm Cake

(Please ignore the icing smudges on the cake platter, thankyouverymuch).
Well, I'm not Duff Goldman or the Cake Boss and I'm most certainly not a food photographer, but I did manage to make a tasty chocolate layer cake. Or so I'm told.
Craig called and left me a message saying that the cake was a hit. The birthday girl got a slice and was saddened to find out that the remaining cake had been polished off before she could get a second. An order has been placed for another cake next week.
I'm looking forward to baking another one, although I'd be lying if I said I was also looking forward to the accompanying mess. Yikes!
I had chocolate frosting everywhere last night, including on a bottle of Snapple iced tea in the refrigerator.
With anyluck next week's cake won't be lopsided as today's.
I'm still perfecting my craft.

I love me some Ace of Cakes...they make the most unique stuff!

Chocolate frosting is one of my favorite things. In fact, I have some in the fridge. I have nothing to frost, but I have frosting. What does that tell you?

Sissy, have you ever smeared frosting on graham crackers? That's a way to use up some frosting, other than in the by-the-spoonful fashion, which is definitely ok in my book. Oh man, that brings back some good kid memories.
Craig and I have a running argument over frosting. He likes that horrid, nasty, barfy bakery whipped stuff and I'm buttercream all the way. We can compromise on cream cheese frosting BUT he does like homemade chocolate buttercream because it's not as sweet as the vanilla stuff.
