7.5 pounds!

yes, you read that right....
this cake is 7.5 pounds.

I picked it up after frosting it and almost dropped it....
this bomb of pure chocolate goodness is
4 1/2 inches tall
9 inches wide
filled with a chocolate strawberry filling
and covered in layers of bittersweet ganache.
Oh sweet heaven.....
may my hips forever love this day.
(9.2 pounds with plate)

Today is Bjorn's 6th birthday~ and last week he found this cookbook.... of course he wanted the cake on the front cover (who wouldn't.... isnt that why it is on the cover?)

I think he got his little hearts desire.
dont you?


  1. Love, love, love that smile, it is adorable!!!

  2. Oh me too - that last photo is just gorgeous! :D
