At work during the slow times, my colleagues will waste away the hours looking at the site Pinterest. Honestly, I don’t understand the obsession these people have with the site, not even after my own stuff was pinned. Or, more accurately, I didn’t. Yesterday one of them came across a chocolate cake that looked absolutely amazing. A click revealed a blog called Art of Dessert (http://artofdessert.blogspot.com) where there on the screen was the most decadent looking chocolate cake ever, a Chocolate Wasted Cake. Chocolate cake, chocolate buttercream frosting and filling, covered on the sides with semisweet chocolate chips, with miniature Hershey Bars, Kit Kats, Twix Bars, Kisses and Whoppers piled on top before being drizzled with melted chocolate.
Must. Make. This. Cake.
So before leaving work yesterday my coworker asked if I would make this for her and I politely (who am I kidding, this is me) said no way in hell. Now I can’t stop thinking about it. Every time I walk into the kitchen I want to pull out everything chocolate and start making this! I want it to be Halloween again so there are fantastic deals on bags of candies to pile high on top of this sinful confection! Ah, but it is almost Valentine’s Day so perhaps there are some candies on sale that will work. Hmmm… I have a bad feeling about this.
Now I’ve gone and requested an invitation to join Pinterest. I’ve ransacked my cupboards to reveal I have everything for the cake and frosting just not the excessive amount of chocolate candy goodness required to take this cake from, well, cake, to amazing. Something tells me this craving will not go away until I finally cave in and do something about it.
