So, the conversation kind of went like this...
"Hey, what kind of cake do you want for your birthday?"
"Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting."
I am sure I didn't hear that correctly. "What?????"
"You heard me, chocolate cake with chocolate frosting".
Air deflates, shoulders slump. "But, but, but..."
Exit, stage left.
First of all, please don't get me wrong. I like chocolate cake. I like chocolate frosting. But together, well... it's kind of boring. I am sure at this point, many people would have left well enough alone and just made a plain jane chocolate cake with the chocolate frosting on top as requested. But, I am never one to leave well enough alone. Besides - in my mind, I knew best.
Think, think, think, think. What't a girl to do. Wait. Hold on a minute. Earth to Cher. HELLOOOO.... No one said anything about the filling between the layers, right? No one said I couldn't add flavors to the cake, right? And I know I didn't hear anything about what I could soak the layers with... (diabolical laughter gets louder and louder). MWAH HA HA HA. It was genius. I was about to take a trek into the dark side - ok, no one said it was a long journey. My accomplice was already sitting in the freezer waiting for me break 'em free.
