Chocolate Slab Cake with Dark Chocolate Frosting
See this cake? Looks good, doesn't it? A shiny layer of chocolat frosting on top of a lusciously thick chocolate cake. Makes you drool, doesn't it? Looks so ooey-gooey delicious, don't it?
Well, I'm here to tell you that it was so-so. I've been doing a lot of cooking from this cookbook called Baking. There's no website for the book or anything that I can point you to on the web. The scone recipes I've been making come from this book, as does that awesome Lemon Syrup Cake. This particular chocolate cake was not all that great.
The frosting is great. It's made of dark chocolate. Unfortunately, it's the only good part of the cake. The actual cake of the cake was bland and rather tasteless. It didn't have nearly enough sugar, and it could have used more chocolate.
So there you go. Another in the list of food that looks good when cooked, but it's not all that great in the mouth.
