So...rewinding back to yesterday's post. Cake. Why the random picture of cake I hear you ask. If you didn't already know, I'm a chocolate fudge cake fiend. In fact I'm probably THE second biggest fudge cake fiend in the world (my boyfriend occupies first place). It's rare for me to leave a fudge-cake serving establishment without having savoured (and of course ranked, in order) the taste. En-between leaving university and dashing home to cook yesterday, I managed to steal a quick coffee at one of my favourite coffee houses - (AFTER Caffe Nero, or course!); remember that time I told you about the "world's greatest chocolate cake" I couldn't quite bring myself to try? Well… yesterday, temptation sort of got the better of me. Now, having tried chocolate cakes far and wide, in many-a-restaurant, many-a-country, this one had quite a lot to live up to. I mean, "the world's greatest chocolate cake"; Presence, what were you thinking?! Pizza Express (served with a choice of cream, ice-cream or mascapone) Prezzo (milk-chocolate cake, layered and filled with an actual fudge icing) and Blue Zenzer (warm, with cold, cold, lusciously luscious vanilla ice-cream) all kick your ass. Oh dear. Pretty tall claim, calling yourself the best chocolate cake in the world, no?
On that note, I think it's time to sweet-talk the boyfriend into going out for (at least) dessert tonight. We made a resolution to cut down on how much we eat out once we were the other side of Christmas, but I can't really be sure we're doing a very good job of it. After a long day at work (him) and uni (me), it's so tempting to forget being sensible (+ frugal). Plus I haven't quite mastered a recipe for the perfect fudge cake. Yet. I'm working on it but 'til then...Come on, don't tell me you're not drooling already? ;) That's all for now but I'll be back on Saturday and in the meanwhile, Happy Thursday, Happy Friday and Happy weekend to you all. Make it a good one.
