Double chocolate layer cake

from The Real Food Daily cookbook (pg. 220) is the cake I chose this year. Art was going to make it, but when he looked at the recipe, he said, "Are you sure you wouldn't rather make this yourself? I'll occupy the girls." He knows me so well! This was one of the richest cakes either of us have eaten, and the frosting is perfectly creamy, and oh so chocolate-y. There was some extra fuss that went into this recipe, and well worth it! A nasturium from my herb barrel & fresh raspberries add some color. Thanks for your birthday & Mother's Day wishes! <3

Yum Yum....that cake looks tasty. I know what you mean about wanting to cook it yourself. Sometimes it's just easier to avoid disasters that way! Hope your enjoyed your birthday and mother's day!

I just love the flower and raspberry toppings. Too funny that you made it yourself while Art played with the girls. I hope you had a wonderful birthday and mom's day!
