2nd Prize!

My Diane Mott Davidson re-creation of the recipe for Double Shot Chocolate Cake just won 2nd place in the Bittersweet Baking contest! I’m very happy with the result. I don’t think I’ve ever tried so hard to make something both look and taste as perfect as possible. Since I’m the 2nd runner up, do you suppose I can still get that espresso machine if the winner fails to fulfill their Queen of Baking duties…or you know, takes some overly sexy cupcake images? I kid…I kid… Now I will anxiously await my “handsome reward.” Who wants to come over for fancy machine made coffee?

Oh, see! Hard work really -does- pay off. What a delight!

I would like to be in the room with you whilst the room is ensconced with the strong smells of finely brewed coffee, please. I will be having tap water.

I am seeing you in approximately one week’s time. Will you have this “handsome reward” by then?
