So I have an announcement. Oooo exciting! Yesterday I was sworn in as an AmeriCorps Vista. I am going to be spending the next year working with an inaugural Vista program helping build services and training for Holocaust survivors. This coming Tuesday is my first day on the job. As I am sure you can guess, I’m excited, nervous, and trying out a bunch of different outfits to figure out what is the best. Pretty normal I think.
And of course you know I’m baking something to celebrate.
Have you ever really wanted a chocolate chip cookie in cake form? If you haven’t then you are missing out, because that is what these are, but also so so much more. Buttery and soft and chocolatey… I found myself eating two a day! And, true confession, I ran out of icing before I ran out of cakes and I found I liked the un-iced ones better. Simple and delicious cake.
Though I used the Chocolate Sour Cream icing and it was very good on these cakes. I will never criticize you for wanting to go decadent!
