  13. Very deft use of chocolate as an artistic medium This cake is a pleasure to look at and, with a piping hot cup of coffee, I'm sure was an immense pleasure to dispose of! Great results!

  15. I am crazy about chocolate. I only get to eat small pieces of dark chocolate very rarely until I lose some weight. Your cakes are so pretty. I am working on an idea for a Black Forest cake with a Steampunk design for my birthday this year. Thanks for visiting my site.
