Chocolate Delight!

I really have to brag on my husband (hope you don't mind) and thought I would share this. Earlier today, Bill made an 11 layer cake with each layer brushed with a simple syrup, then with a layer of chocolate mousse. The outside has milk chocolate frosting and the sides covered with cake crumbles. I gained 20 pounds just looking at it!

OH MY.........!!!

This cake was kind of inspired by a show on the Food Network called, "The Best Thing I Ever Ate", and one of the features was a chef who made a 27-layer cake with a chocolate ganache and it was incredible. Of course we don't have the fancy pans and equipment that guy did, but I figure this will be a HUGE hit at my husband's job. They're having a cooking contest later this month and even if this cake wins, Bill said he would defer the prize to someone else since he's the boss. He just wanted to enter it to see how it would do.
Bill's a fabulous cook to begin with, and this time he's hit a home run!  


  1. Oh my! I'm salivating just looking at the pictures.

  2. I've had one small piece of this since Bill made it, and I have to make myself walk away whenever I go into the kitchen. LOL. He's just happy everyone's loved it, and I think he was really touched when I made this post. After he read it he gave me a hug. :)

  3. You know how to make a person drool!

  4. Oh. My. Goodness!!! Would it be really weird if I licked my computer screen right now? That is a gorgeous cake.

  5. I hate that we all don't live closer together because I would have loved sharing this with you all. A nice piece of cake, a hot cup of coffee or cocoa and everything's right with the world!
    I'll be sure and pass along your comments to Bill. He'll really enjoy them. :)
