First let me say I was truly touched that my friend Kelly made me a birthday cake for my party tonight.
It was very tasty, but the best chocolate cake I ever had was last year's cake, made by Geoff, recipe by Food & Wine and it required a lot of work.

We had invited our good friends Chad & Khara to come to dinner, and since Chad & I both share January birthdays, I could justify the need for a cake. It was rich, almost too rich, as only one slice was needed before you felt overwhelmed by chocolate.
But it was sooo worth it. Nothing beats a homemade cake!
