So I was feeling myself last week (not literally ya nasties). During the summer time my skin gets sun-kissed and my already pretty almond brown skin get a little richer and slightly darker. I think its gorgeous. I was looking at myself in the mirror and I started to have a conversation with my ego self and it went a little something like this:
Ego Self: What up shawty?
Me: Hi! What you been up to?
Ego: Nothing much. Just watching your sexy self in the mirror everyday.
Me: Who me? You mean you find ALLLLLLL of this sexy?
Ego. I do. I bet if you were a piece of cake, you would be eaten up in a heart beat. In fact, if people tried to put ice cream on that cake it would melt immediately because you are too hott!
Eureka! That is when I made the decision to make a cake in honor of all the sexual chocolate out there. And you know, chocolate just isn’t brown. There is white chocolate too!
So what would a sexual chocolate cake look like? I have a basic recipe for the a chocolate cake that I like but I wanted to take it to another level. I wanted something more dense. That is how I thought of the brownie cake. I didn’t want to do butter cream and I didn’t want to do a Swiss meringue either. That is how the chocolate mousse and ganache got in the mix and the chocolate wafers was a last-minute idea and I’m so glad I did that because it made the cake look so much prettier.
This cake is a brownie cake with chocolate mousse as the frosting covered with chocolate ganache and garnished with crushed chocolate wafers.
So this cake is dedicated to all the sexy chocolate people out there that comes in many shades. This one is for you!Print
