When I'm 64

I had a lovely birthday today. After a bit of shopping to acquire the appropriate ingredients, we grilled some nice steaks for dinner. Later, we finished up putting together (for the second time) a spectacular recipe for chocolate cake that I got from Amy McNally. The first time that we made this three layer cake, K ate one of the layers before it actually got assembled. It turns out that's a good idea, because at three layers, it's a bit unstable when you cut it. :) We also tweaked the frosting recipe for more cocoa and less powdered sugar.

It was *very* chocolate. :)
