Once I get my lazy ass out of bed I will be baking up that flourless chocolate cake with the cheesecake layer and the raspberry sauce.
But in the meantime I have been enjoying my pirated wireless internet connection from my comfy bed and found out that my dear cake mistress and mentor, Rose Levy Beranbaum, has recently started A CAKE BLOG! It's mainly a question and answer forum for desperate bakers like myself obsessed with her many books. But still!
(OH MY GOD this is why I LOVE her!!!!!!!!!!)
For all of you who don't know, pretty much every cake I bake comes from her book, The Cake Bible. My battered, trashed, falling apart copy of The Book is my constant companion in times of woe. I am trying to gather up the funds to have Kinko's laminate the pages and spiral bind the book since all the pages are beginning to fall out. Please donate to my worthy cause. Help the children.
