I suppose my kids should be the no-brainer here, but nah....instead...
This is the Black Forest Cake I made for my husband's birthday just this last weekend. BFC is a cake that holds special memories for us - it was a dessert our college cafeteria made very, very well.
But, in particular this picture makes me happy because being in the kitchen and making such things makes me very happy. I am grateful to have a husband with a good-paying job, who is okay with me working part-time and encourages me to pursue my culinary happiness. Of course, when he has to eat such concoctions like this, he realizes it's a win-win situation. :)
You'll notice my first attempt of a Black Forest Cake is far from perfect. In fact, I stacked the cake layers wrong, giving it the weird hourglass shape. I also applied the whipped topping too early, as it went runny within minutes. But - the important thing is that it was attempted. And it was devoured.
