When it snows here we usually only get an inch or so and it melts in twenty-four hours. This five inches we received is still hanging around.
Gus still thinks you should take the day off!
The temperatures have been freezing! Too cold to work in the yard and to do the usual hardscape maintainance I like to do during the Winter! The days have been in the low 30s or even upper 20s with the night temps in the low twenties and a few times down to about 10f! Just crazy.
So my thoughts turn to cooking. I set my internet radio to Amsterdam Dance Radio or put a Depeche Mode CD in!
I have been looking at the label recipes of the Hershey’s Cocoa package and decided to make the chocolate cake recipe and the frosting recipe, too!
HERSHEY’S “PERFECTLY CHOCOLATE” Chocolate Cake
The two layers cooling in the pans. The middle cooked slower then the side so next time I will cook them on the lower shelf and not on the top shelf.
“PERFECTLY CHOCOLATE” CHOCOLATE FROSTING
Hmm, chocolate buttercream frosting!
And the final product! Hmm, I don’t think I would be a good sculptor or mason as I am very messy!
But it all taste the same in the end!!
Of course, later in the day we headed to downtown Raleigh (http://www.godowntownraleigh.com/) and The Borough restaurant (http://theboroughraleigh.com/) for my favorite drink: “How do you Q?” Pretty, isn’t it?
