Even more her best friend when she realizes she hasn't posted to her dear blog for, well, ages, AND her exam is just a little less than a month away. When she then on top of that realizes she's had just a bit too much fun with chocolate (and other food items) during the past four months for her to have really prepared for any of that - I guess you know how it goes, don't you?
It's That Time Of Year where I try to cram, cram and cram some more and try to get ready for my exam. If I'm lucky, I'll even have some chocolatey friends to help me. Except maybe not the one in the top right corner. We weren't friends, and really, it was all his fault, 'cause he could just have come out of that Bundt pan already, yes he could!
They are, from top to bottom, Classic Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Cake - Heirloom Devil's Food Layer Cake (My Birthday Cake this year) - and Milk Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake, all from Lisa Yockelson's ChocolateChocolate. (Btw., Luisa, you're right - most of it is just a matter of "chocolate chipping" a cake and then miracously it becomes a chocolate cake - good cakes, though:-)) Oh yes, and then there's the block and a half of Valrhona that I'm counting on will last me through the rest of the month. Maybe, if I'm stingy enough.
So forgive me if there's a bit quiet or short-posted around these parts for a while. You know why, now. Oh, and if you have a couple fingers to spare, keep them crossed for me - you might earn some chocolate cake in the process, heh!:-)
