I love pies . . .

but I want cake for birthdays and our anniversary.  Derin made this cake for our Anniversary.  Such a sweetie - he knows I love anything made with real chocolate.  It is from Dorie Greenspan's  Baking - From my Home to Yours".   Our recommendation - we have made many of the recipes in this book and they are good.   If you like to bake I would buy it or put it on my gift list.  The recipe is The Devil's Food White-Out Cake, it is made with cocoa, bitterweet chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate.   The chocolate layers are filled and frosted a "billowy, sweet marshmallow" filling/frosting.   Dorie says "I've sometines thought that if my mother had been a baker (she wasn't), and if she had ever made me this cake (which she didn't), it would have been my childhood favorite."   I agree - it is one my favorites.

Happy Anniversay Cake
