Then look no more!
Look no more because what's coming next is a fat fest and a sugar spree. Sorry.
This is a celebration cake. A special occasion cake. Or a rainy Saturday cake. Or a sunny Thursday cake. Whatever. I'm not judgin' if you're not judgin'.
The cake itself is the basic chocolate cupcake recipe from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World, but baked in an eight by eight inch cake pan for 25-30 minutes. The frosting is obscene. I usually make only half the amount of frosting that I made for this cake here, but this time I made it for the blog, and the blog requires chocolate obscenity.
The best thing about making a double batch of frosting for this one is that there is frosting spillage all around the sides of the cake. So, assuming you cut it into nine squares, then all squares but the middle one will have frosting on the sides as well. It's important to give the middle square to your least favorite guest. It's like giving them "the finger" without giving them the finger. Depending on the level of dislike that you have for this guest, you can either give them the middle piece nonchalantly, or you can make it evident that you're giving them the least desired piece. Just serve your other guests the edge pieces that are overflowing with frosting, and then just hand that bastard the middle piece very slowly while maintaining eye contact and putting on your best deadpan face. Message received. No words needed.
Obscene Chocolate Cake with Fudgy Frosting
Ingredients:What to do:
I've had some mixed results refrigerating the cake to speed up the fudging up process. If you leave it in the fridge for too long then the frosting will be too hard and you'll have to let it sit out at room temperature to soften up a bit anyway. If you're feeling impatient and you must refrigerate your cake because you must have it now, then I would recommend checking it every five minutes. I've done this, but I tend to forget all about the cake and check it an hour later only to find that the frosting has hardened too much. Of course if you live somewhere where it's too warm and your chocolate won't fudge up at room temperature, you may have no choice but to refrigerate it.
^^ The side-frosting overfloweth.
And now as if this blog post wasn't sweet enough, I shall leave you with a photo of one of our baby geese. What's sweeter, the cake or the fuzzy little bebeh?
