...and a damn good chocolate cake

Look who finally got herself a sheer top. and only what? a year after it was trendy? But what can I say? I never was one to be on top of trends. Sure, I'm aware of what's "new" or "hot" each new season, but I don't usually hit the shops right when they first are available. But it's different when it comes to food. Whenever I hear of a new method of cooking or a different flavor combination, I eagerly load up on ingredients and try it out or head out to a restaurant that offers it. 

I had come across this Chocolate Wasted Cake recipe a few weeks ago, but waited until last weekend to make it for my husband's birthday celebration. It was rich and decadent and damn good. And that's coming from a gal who isn't a huge fan of sweets. It's a really easy cake to make too. So if you're an amateur baker and a crap cake-decorator (like I am) this cake is for you. It requires slapping on chocolate in a mess of buttercream icing and drizzling the chocolate collage with even more chocolate. 

If you do make this cake, please take pictures and let me know! I'd love to see them!

  14. Whoa. That cake. Pretty amazing. That is a lot of chocolate.

    Sheer is awesome, especially in a darker color. I see so much white and pastel sheer, and this bluish color is so much cooler.

  30. Yum! That cake looks and sounds amazing. I'd probably only be able to take a bite of it, but it looks like even one bite would pack a chocolate-y flavorful punch.

    Love the sheer green blouse! I love the trend too, and have a couple of sheer pieces. I prefer them as layering garments usually, but I like the risque look too.

  32. That top is gorgeous on you, lady! I approached the sheer trend late as well just because I always feel a little self-conscious "um, yeah, that's my bra and you're supposed to see it... I think."
    p.s. MOST amazing cake ever!!!! Happy belated to your hubs!
