Look What I Made!!!


A dark chocolate fudge cake layered with dark chocolate mousse...and I made it for Pat's birthday. (Am I a nice wife or what?) Yes, me...The person who, up until recently, only owned one, somewhat warped, cookie sheet and wasn't quite sure what a cooling rack looked like.
(These were recently on sale so I stocked up. Aren't you proud of me, Diana?)

Those who know me best know that cooking and baking definitely don't make my top ten list of favorite things to do, but it is kind of fun to make a special cake for a special occasion...once in awhile. And I figured since Pat got me this yummy ice cream cake/pie for my b'day not too long ago....
I should do something nice in return!

Of course, it's no Blue's Clues cake, like I made for Noah's b'day...but everybody still seemed to like it!
