More and more I gravitate toward the easy and delicious recipes, no time for too much complexity. Simplicity was especially important for the cake made for Mark’s recent birthday, because it happened while we were traveling. In someone else’s kitchen I was using supplies and ingredients from my mom’s pantry.
Moist, rich, chocolaty (chocolatey?), pretty perfect. I did add sprinkles but next time I won’t (and there WILL be a next time, I almost made this two weeks later for my own b-day). The sprinkles were hard and I felt like they disturbed the perfect creamy texture of the frosting.
