Cakeness

I made a Double Chocolate Torte for Ryan's birthday yesterday. I made it ahead on Saturday night, and it turned out wonderful! The bottom half is a dense, dark, chocolaty cake (minimal flour), and the top half is a smooth mousse. It's a great do-ahead dessert that isn't necessarily "quick" but is worth the multiple steps involved.

Alicia... glad that it turned out well for you. I just made it last weekend for mother's day and birthdays. I also made a raspberry coulis to set the cake on, and garnished with a chocolate espresso sauce. Really, really good!
