I loooooove fine chocolate. On my birthday more than a week ago, my husband made Beast’s flourless chocolate cake. He made this before for my grandson – see the recipe here. This rich, dense and somewhat salty, chocolaty treat is definitely near the top spot on my best chocolate chart. My husband and I are very fortunate to have fine chocolate experience and we know one or two things about really good chocolate. This is one of our affordable luxuries.
I signed up at a local shopping center and this is some of the things I got on my birthday from them. The cup cake from Sweetest Thing Cupcakes and it’s gluten free. Mrs.Fields chocolate and macadamia nuts cookie. A movie ticket and free valet parking ticket.
I took half portion cake to October Birthday luncheon at friend's house and it disappeared quickly. I’m grateful for friends who organized that event and thank you darling for your hard work. Beside eating, decorating the cake was fun too. Being old is not so bad after all.
