Musings on Life, Love, and Chocolate Cake…
While I was developing my blog and website, I spent hours brainstorming taglines. I felt the blog needed a great phrase that not only defined me, but defined my voice– who I am as a writer. That was a lot pressure to place on a poor little tagline. But after driving myself, my family, and my writing buddies batty, here are some of my favorites: Don't Trust the Chocolate Cake, Romance with Dangerous Curves, Danger Over Every Curve, Musings on Life, Love, and Chocolate Cake [the last one was my idea]. As I mused over what to choose, the whole chocolate cake thing kept coming back to me.
So what’s romantic suspense-y about chocolate cake? Well, NOTHING and EVERYTHING. In my opinion, chocolate cake is one of God’s gifts to mankind. Without simple pleasures like chocolate cake, life’s just too hard. Why write at all?
I can list all the benefits of chocolate cake like protein, fiber…but I won’t put you through that and get to my point.
I have a little contest in mind. If you leave a comment about why chocolate cake is so important in your life, and what life would be without it, I’ll enter your name in a drawing. And the winner receives…drum roll please… YEP, you guessed it― one of my famous chocolate cakes mailed in a United States Post Office bulk box right to your door. It’s made from scratch and freezes beautifully. I have sent this cake to college kids, friends, family members and it’s arrived still amazingly, fantastically delicious.
My only condition for receiving this gift is a picture of you enjoying the cake for the world to see. And for all of you who didn’t win, when you come back to check the contest results, scroll down and the recipe will be there for the making. But for now, practice on ...
The Most Wonderful Chocolate Frosting in the World
[This takes all of 5 minutes. I suggest you double it. One recipe for the cake, the other for your spoon.]
Bring to a soft boil or until everything is well blended:
1 stick of butter
4 Tbs. cocoa or 2 squares of unsweetened chocolate
¼ C of milk
Pour over 1 pound of powdered sugar. Mix well.
Enjoy with a good book and soft romantic music.
