So, my wife is actually a Culinary Graduate, ,from a very respectable school in Baltimore, MD.
Her specialty is baking and she's a fantastic baker!
So yesterday she decides to make a chocolate cake. Now, anyone can make a chocolate cake, right? But she's got "ideas". She goes all out;
there's no dark chocolate pieces in this cake, it's all done with Cocoa powder. This cake comes out FANTASTIC, with a chocolate depth beyond
anything I've ever known (but she's an honest to God "Chef", right?).
Well, this cake is supposed to be a two layer cake, and she's made two icings for the cake. She's going to do (white) butter / cream cheese icing
in the middle and dark chocolate icing (all homemade) on the outside. She doesn't even like icing at all, but I love thee stuff!
We're talking "blow your socks right off your feet, kind of stuff here!!"
Anyay, she's taking one of the cakes out of the pan...and it breaks (half of it stuck, even though she'd greased the pan and even used parchment
paper). She's PISSED!!! So she's ready to throw the whole cake into the garbage and start over.
"WHOA!!! WHOA, WHOA...WHOA!!! Let's taste this so called "crappy" cake of yours first!!", I say.
Well, it turns out this is the BEST cake I've ever eaten in my life!!!! Hand's down! Okay, sure it's broken, but it's AWESOME!!!
I practically have to fight this girl to keep her from throwing this thing in the trash can. Finally, I say...."Look, I'll eat it, and I don't
care how ugly it looks; this thing is a MASTERPIECE!!!!!
So I've spent the past two days taking this broken cake out, cutting slices, and putting this wonderful (World class) white butter-creme frosting on
it! and then MUNCHING it down with delight!
Ugly??? Who the F# cares!!! ...this S# is the best cake I've ever tasted! The depth of the cocoa and the butter-creme is off the freaking
....and she's still mad over the whole thing!!
(just wants to know when she's getting her new oven...and it's still 5 weeks out on order (all 60" of it)!!)
Bottom line..."let them eat cake", some say....I'm all good with that....provided it's THIS cake!~!!!
