Sometimes just jamming a few candles in the cake just isn't special enough, you know?
This chocolate cake is rich, decadent, nearly brownie-like in texture and totally inching its way toward my mouth, I swear. I'm not sure what happened; I went from not liking sweets at all to eating two whole brownies this last weekend. Someone who likes chocolate took over my body for a minute and it's freaking me out. But man oh man were those brownies delicious!
Eli Squarepants! Okay so I'm not really a Spongebob fan, I'm a little old for that one, but I do think the show is cute and my nieces and nephews love it. This cake is a masterpiece topped off with those little jellyfish, I'm smitten. It makes me want to watch the show just because someone was so masterful with fondant. Hey baker, are you being payed by Nickelodeon?
Normally I'd scream overkill at a cake this busy but there is some amazing balance going on here. A striped rainbow heart inside a striped rainbow cake? A rainbow of fondant sprinkles so perfect they must have been placed there by very patient elves? I swoon for this kind of overkill.
I have a good friend who doesn't really have any furniture in his apartment. He has a computer and a desk and a million musical instruments but nothing to sit on. I so badly want to make him a whole set of living room furniture he can't use.
Have you started stuffing your face with corned beef and cabbage yet? Are you 4 Guinnesses deep? Have you been pinched or kissed? Go crazy, dye the river green, gorge on Irish cheddar and remember to drink lots of water and take some ibuprofen before bed.
