Anyone else craving chocolate today? No just me? Really? Yeah I know you’re out there. lol My cravings for chocolate have exceeded my desire for working out…it happens more than it should…but today it is intense. So instead of baking something I’ll regret eating later, I drove to HEB to pick up a small bag of Ghirardelli 70% Cocoa. I ate one piece on the way home, and then placed it in the fridge. For me if it’s colder I won’t eat as much. Now that I have my chocolate, should I work out? The answer is yes, but my mind says, “No, sit down, write a blog post, watch the Spring Baking Championship.” That’s exactly what I’m doing right now.
Earlier today I put a grocery list together for a wedding cake that I’m making this Saturday. It’s not a typical wedding cake: German Chocolate cake. I have a family recipe that is four generations old for the pecan-coconut frosting. I’m so honored to be able to use this recipe. I can’t wait for Saturday! This cake is going to be tasty! Come to think of it I’m pretty sure this is why I’m craving chocolate today. Hmmmm…problem solved! Also a side note, I just got out another piece of chocolate, it taste so good. At this point I think you should be holding some chocolate and enjoying it!
As I said before I’m watching Spring Baking Championship, and wow, these people can bake! I’m watching the one that aired March 19, 2017. Their cookie garlands are incredible for the Run for the Roses! What three spring cookies would you make?
