Hooray for cake!

April surprised me yesterday with this astonishing birthday cake:

Isn't this cake gorgeous? I love the funky lettering, and of course the skates trailing flames! Almost too pretty to eat... almost.

A cake this pretty deserves a spokesmodel that doesn't look like a huge dork. But no such luck.

I was amazed to find that the skates were actually thin pieces of solid white chocolate.

Chocolate cake layers with chocolate mousse in between, with a thick layer of rich buttercream frosting. As delicious as it was, one piece was plenty.
