Dispensing Happiness

A good cook is like a sorceress who dispenses happiness.-Elsa Schiapirelli

That's me, the magical good cook.

Borrowing from my friend Dexygus, I've created my own food blog.

Read of my exploits in the kitchen! Salivate over the descriptions of fabulous desserts and savory meals I've concocted!

No, seriously...go ahead. It'll make my day.

Salutations and Congratulations

.



My father-in-law recently celebrated two events: his sixty-ninth birthday, and his retirement from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

My mother-in-law wondered if I would make a cake...? Of course I would

Another recipe from Perfect Cakes, I made Shoggitorte.

A chocolate genoise, sliced into two layers, and filled and topped with a dark chocolate mousse (I used powdered agar instead of gelatin). The cake is finished off with milk chocolate shavings.



Just five of us, so obviously the cake went over well!

What a yummy looking cake! When I first saw the photo I thought it was a German chocolate cake, but mousse and chocolate shavings....mmmm!

Thanks, Cathy!

Nah...no German chocolate cake (although that's not a true 'German' cake, trust me); we don't like coconut!

Awesome looking cake! Looks very tasty and big!

Thanks, Joe. It was big; about nine and a half inches around. But not as sweet or heavy as I'd feared.

I know you are conspiring against me... there is a bakery there is a chocolate tart... no no no no

Go on...give in!

Actually, I never have more than a small slice of anything I make. I let Matt, the in-law's, the letter carrier...have the rest!
