I had four tests this week, starting Saturday. Tonight at 6:30 marked the end of the last exam. A few of my friends and I decided we’d have a mini celebration before two of them went home for Easter. So on Thursday when I had a bit of a break from anything but studying, I baked up a chocolate layer cake.
I used the same recipe that I used for my friend Jaclyn’s birthday cake, except this time I made one and a half recipes of the chocolate icing, and for the filling, I mixed in some raspberry preserves with some of the chocolate icing for a big of tang. It went a lot better than that cake did, in terms of layering it and icing it, but the oven in the dorm isn’t really the best for baking cakes; the heat is extremely uneven, so the cake ended up a little wonky. It tastes and smells heavenly, though, so that’s fine with me!
I originally wanted to put a quote on top in icing, “One may go a long way after one is tired,” to relate to how we didn’t give up this week (I’m lame, I know), but I ran out of icing after the first word. I ended up just putting some mini M&Ms on top for a burst of color. You can never go wrong with chocolate cake!! 🙂
