look what i made

One of these:
This is a four layer chocolate cake with bittersweet chocolate-sour cream frosting. Because it's health food when you use bittersweet chocolate. Antioxidants and some such nonsense. And it's better. That's why.

And then, I made some of these:

They are pretty things made of dark chocolate. Because things are prettier when they are made of dark chocolate. Just ask Willie Wonka. Because he knows, that's why.

Acquire some nasturtiums. Then, pick some violets. Because they are pretty and edible, that's why. It's a two-for-one kind of deal. And we all like a bargain.

Then close your eyes, count to 10, and say, There's nothing like chocolate. There's nothing like chocolate. Oh, and also, click your heels together three times. Because it worked for Dorothy, that's why.

Like a bunch of two year-olds, all this why-asking.

And, voila!

The loveliest cake ever.

I call it that, because that's what it is, that's why.


  1. What a beautiful love cake!It looks delicious!

  3. Oh my gosh!!!! That looks awesome!!!!

  4. So after reading all of your comments on Jocelyn's blog, I thought I would check yours out!!! This cake looks AWESOME!! You should make cakes on a part-time basis! Awesome job!!!

  5. OHMIGOSH! SO Melody left a comment on my blog to check out your cake, and boy am I glad I did. Because it was worth my time, that's why. (I have a three year old, so I am with on always explaining why preemptively. You know it's coming so you might a well be ready for it.)
    I want to be cool and creative like you! (But, please, check out the curtains I made and tell me how pretty they are. Not as pretty as flowers on cakes. And, sadly they are not dark chocolate. Nor are they edible. Sad sad.)

  6. I know I'm about four years late to the party, but that looks amazing!!
