I love cake. Not too surprising, since I consider “butter” and “dessert” two distinct food groups. And as my affection for cake has become known amongst my family and friends, I have been asked to bake birthday cakes.

I love baking. I love any excuse to spend time in my kitchen. Here’s the cake that really started it all.

The Bat-Cake, for my friend Char’s 25th surprise birthday party. Hells yeah. Now, before you jump to any conclusions, I didn’t say I was a whiz at decorating cakes. But underneath the amateurish yellow and black frosting lies a rich, amazing, chocolate and raspberry confection that makes even the most staunch dieter reconsider his or her position.

I mean, this cake is totally kick-ass.

It contains two pounds of butter, for crying out loud!

How could that NOT be amazing?

Anyway…apart from my slavish devotion to butter (and not that fake buttery-substitute crap)…

The next step in my voyage to complete cake obsession is going to be perfecting the chocolate almond torte. I will be spending pretty much all day on Sunday getting this baby done, and will post pictures so you can be jealous of the results. Bwahahaha.

Love, peace, and lots of cake,
