An amazingly moist rich chocolate cake with light-as-air chocolate frosting. This is the ultimate chocolate layer cake.
I consider my birthday to be my personal New Year and celebrate accordingly. No overcrowded soirees and schwanky duds for this chicken; I prefer good company, introspection, bubbles, and my du jour favorite foods. This year, I had a hankering for Cuban sandwiches and chocolate cake. Cubans are pretty straight-forward (except that I used chicken … I just cannot help myself with the experimenting… it was okay; pork’s better). Cake, on the other hand … cake takes thought. Given that I’ve grown up with the queens of chocolate cakedom (Nonnie and Mom), this couldn’t be any ordinary cake… it had to exceed expectations. I was having a needs-expectations-exceeded birthday so the pressure was real. Birthday drama is my jam. Even made up cake drama.
