Here is my take on chocolate cake. I like the flowers, spires, and cacao nibs. Sometimes, I could skip the cake and just delve into a big pile of cacao nibs. Sometimes, I just want unsophisticated cake out made from a box off the supermarket shelf. But it's always fun to have a cake wearing a fancy hat like the one at right. If I don't know the recipe, then I like to see how it's done in a video. One more thing - let's face it - sometimes we really just want the icing.
