Imagine a chocolate layer cake with an oreo cookie layer. Picture a layered, ganached chocolatey blissed out cake with a berry frosting? Can you see a deep chocolate tart or the espresso pound cake? (I hope so because I didnt get any pics tonight. Didnt realize but i left the house with 2 cakes but no memory card. Still cant seem to find it, i was down loading pictures and now, well, its not in the camera.) No pictures of the ten gorgeous chocolate cake donations; It’s ok though, because the dinners feasted on the cakes and are speechless themselves with finger licking satisfaction. Thanks to everyone who baked for Chocolate Cake night!

One week we served apple cider cupcakes with caramel frosting. Another weekly theme was brownies. Volunteers treated us to their yummilicious interpretation of tropical cupcakes and introduced us to their favorite type of cookie. Thanks to everyone who baked and supported this project.

Good eats, tasty sweets.
