My darling husband, Mr. Scrumptious, had a birthday yesterday!! We were so busy celebrating I didn't get to let you all know about it until a day late.
My husband is the most wonderful, kind, gentle and brilliant person I have ever met. We have an extremely deep and powerful bond which makes us much more than husband and wife. Each and every day I am so very grateful, thrilled and profoundly awestruck that I am married to the greatest person I have ever known. I love and cherish him with my entire being and our three years of marriage have been the best years of my life. Every day is better than the one before. His birthday is a special day to shower him with all the love and spoiling I can muster.
Last year before our Christmas party, I discovered a decadent and very rich recipe from Food & Wine magazine for a Fudgy Chocolate Cake by Andrew Shotts. This three-layer beauty is unique, dreamy, intense and scrumptious. Just like my husband. So this year, I made this luscious cake to match him, my darling Mr. Scrumptious. Happy Birthday, my love.
P.S. I used Jacques Torres 70% bittersweet chocolate. Wow.
