The Quest: Chocolate Cake
I made my first entry in The Chocolate Cake Quest when I made Mark's half birthday cake. It was from Our Best Bites. I made the cake and the frosting. They weren't too labor intensive which is important. I dirtied a lot more dishes than if I'd made a cake mix and my regular frosting, but this is, after all, The Quest.
The cake was a tiny bit dry. Not really dry, but not as moist as I'd like. The frosting was a little too rich. I liked it, but I should have used a thinner layer.
I had enough extra frosting to make these:
I should have made more.
I didn't need such a thick layer of frosting and frosting on graham crackers is maybe the ambrosia the Greek gods ate on Mt. Olympus.
The Quest continues.
