Chocolate Cake...



I have had chocolate cake 2 days in a row now but sadly I do not think I will be having a piece tonight! However I have realized how much I truly enjoy this dessert! Apart from the fact that the cake tends to stick to my teeth I enjoy the experience. After having the oppurutnity to eat chocolate cake 2 nights in a row I have brought back a few memories from when I was a youngen..

#1) I remember my mom used to make teddy bear cakes! Maybe she only made one my whole life but it felt like a million? I loved that cake shape. However I wish it had made the table a few more times, not moms' fault more my fault. I passed by it so many times when I would put away groceries dubbed "freezer" and always thought "I should bake a cake in that" but never did. I don't even know where it is anymore? Mom, do we even have it anymore? How sad..

#2) I also remember in elementary school I loved cake at birthdays! But I HATED when people had a vanilla cake..why? Vanilla seems so boring to me, it makes no sense and it truly does not spell PARTY to me! My dad is a huge fan of vanilla and I just don't get it! When I eat chocolate cake I feel like it is a special fancy occasion..I feel like I am a kid again at a birthday party anticipating what is going to be in the goody bag...

Basically I have enjoyed my chocolate cake induldging this week..

Hmmmm...
actually I think it could be that you share the "chocolate gene" with me.
I have always viewed vanilla or white cake as plain as in "I'll have a plain burger", just the patty and bun. I think vanilla is a non flavour.
The correct answer for the chocoholic is.."Chocolate, is there any other flavour?"
I am disappointed when a cake is cut and its not chocolate, like what the heck is the flavour for "golden" cake? How many people do you hear say for my birthday I want golden, does it taste like gold? It was tough after I married your father to be yoked to a man that doesn't share the passion for chocolate cake but luckily you have it. Maybe when you come home I will bake you a chocolate lava cake, my brain is doing that thing just thinking about it.
any ways, I love you and your blog.

it's really a good thing we weren't freinds as children you would of hated my birthday. The most chocolate we ever had at my birthday was the chocolate from an ice cream cake...you would of hated the year when I had mile high lemon meringue pie as my cake but then come to think of it so did most of the kids at my party...you should of tasted the cake I had last year for my birthday....I realized this year is my "Golden" Birthday maybe I should have a golden cake...

You should make a chocolate cake in a crock-pot sometime. I made one for bible study because our oven stopped working and it turned out really good ... so yummy that I've just made another one :)

Hi Walshy-
You make my day.

I agree. What is it about vanilla that makes people all, "woot woot!!" Chocolate, without a doubt, is the best. For my birthday this year I had juicy, yummy skor cake and I was basically in heaven; until it was all gone . . . :(
