Happy almost Monday you beautiful badass bakers!
Now, I know what you’re thinking. “Happy almost Monday?” Sounds like the oxymoron to end all oxymorons what with “happy” and “Monday” being so close together and all. But when a Monday involves copious amounts of chocolaty cake goodness, I’m pretty sure it qualifies as a “good” Monday.
About a month ago I asked my husband what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday, which resulted in a week long deluge of daily updates on potential cake flavors. He ran the gambit of flavors… everything from fruity to sweet and syrupy and ever possible flavor in between. But one day he came to me, a determined look on his face and requested a chocolate cake.
