FOOD PORN ALERT

Doesn't that look fantastic? If I do say so myself, that is ;)
I had so much fun making this authentic Devils Food Cake with a dark chocolate ganache! I have to say this was most definitely the most complicated cake I have ever made, with sifting, creaming, boiling, combining, dropping... whew! It was a workout in a baking session but well worth the sweat! I can't wait to eat it!

I DID try and keep my hands out of the ganache. Of course when I say "try" I mean I tried for about 5 minutes and then once I got a tiny taste, I was all fingers (don't worry, they were clean and I was using a spatula on the cake!!). For a true chocoholic like me, this frosting was a dream. Beats the canned variety any day!


As for the rest of my day, I had a nice 45 minute inclined walk with a 10 minute running/sprinting bout at my parents' house on the treadmill this morning. I had a light cheese stick as a snack while I watched some Grey's Anatomy and gabbed with the parents before heading back to the beach house for lunch. I made myself a healthy, filling lunch- 1/2 cup egg whites made into an omelette with some sauteed veggies- some of my seasoned frozen onions&mushrooms, fresh grape tomatoes and some spinach. On the side I had two vegetarian sausage links and a few grapes to round out the meal.

This was great, and filled me up all through cake baking, getting to the airport to pick up nick, and then back home for cake decorating. Then, I snacked on an orange (small snack because all the ganache filled me up!!) to hold me until dinner tonight which I am verrry excited about- I'm making Nick Jenna's recipe for Chicken Enchiladas, because I've made them a couple times and he requested them he loves them so much!


Then of course is the party so I won't be posting until after work tomorrow. Have a great rest of your saturday, I'll be back in tomorrow!!
