At last, the coveted cover cake, that has been taunting us all these months has made it to ovens and plates across the blogosphere. Stephanie from Confessions of a City Eater finally chose this cake for the Tuesdays with Dorie group this week. I made it for a dinner with our friends Emily and Jeff. I found the cake part to be very good if a little sweet ( i enjoyed the mini chocolate chips in it). I am a big fan of chocolate cakes such as this one, made with hot water, which create a moist moist cake. However, I am not a fan of italian meringue, which is the frosting for this cake. Just a little too sweet as a combo. It makes a pretty cake though, and the idea of putting cake crumbs on the outside is tasty and novel. Check out Stephanie's blog for the recipe!
