***Well, I took my camera in. They had to send it up to Nikon. I won’t know until the end of the week if they can repair it. And, even if they can, there is every possibility that it will be too expensive relative to the worth of the camera. What I am trying to say…expect crappy laptop photos at least through caramel crunch bars. Back to our originally scheduled programming…
Dear Devil’s Food Black and White Cake –
However it happened it was worth it. I am especially enjoying this Tuesdays with Dorie business. I have been anxiously waiting for you, dear cover cake and, now that we are acquainted, I have already put in several requests for you in the future. She mentioned something about time and detail and a thermometer that went from 230 to 250 in 1.2 seconds but, truth be told, I wasn’t listening. Blah blah blah….where is my cake already?
I was so busy enjoying your chocolately goodness I didn’t even notice that you aren’t circular. Once again she started off on some story about 9in v. 8 in and blah blah blah…oohh more frosting. I was forced to eat my share for breakfast this morning. Kelly mentioned something about grilled tofu and chard for dinner before cake and I became conveniently busy Sunday night. I know younger people eat that stuff but, really, by choice? Not my choice. I am here now watching her kids, and Will and I are into our second slices. It’s not even noon but I heard some rumblings that she might take any leftovers to work. Not on my watch, dear cake, not on my watch. Will and I are compelled to save you from that fate. Colin won’t eat any because there is cake in the frosting. He may look like Kelly but that nonsense has to be from her husband’s family.
Yes, that is him with a chocolate chip cookie…
I always knew Kelly would turn out all right despite that time she stayed out until 3:00am in high school and tried to rationalize it by saying she would be in college in 6 months anyway. I still love to bring that one up but I digress.
I love you chocolate marshmallow cake. Please don’t ever leave me. Unless you have brothers. Lots of them.
Your devoted soul mate,
The full recipe can be found at Confessions of a City Eater by Stephanie. Great choice!
