Weather: 33, heavy snowfall (imagine that!), not sticking
What I’m listening to: the kids watching the movie Hop
Easter stirs up memories of chocolate malted eggs sitting in a colorful basket atop Easter grass. As much as I love a tall, cold chocolate malted milkshake, I’ve never been a huge fan of the candy. I’d much rather have a slice of this moist, rich Chocolate Cake with Malted Chocolate Buttercream frosting, a grown up nod to the nostalgic childhood favorite. Grab a glass of milk and you’ll be in chocolate malted heaven.
I admitted to you when I made Key Lime Cake last month that cake-decorating is brand new to me (thank you for all the encouraging comments that helped spur me on to try more cakes). The only way to learn is to practice, so I took on this pretty, flowery petal technique on this one. The petals gave the double-chocolate treat a little bit of springtime whimsy.
