Today's Chocolate Cake Day. I'm not a huge fan of chocolate cake. Oh, I'll not refuse a piece if someone offers me one at a party, but I've always prefered other cakes instead of chocolate cake.
Some people like their chocolate cakes dense and almost fudge-like. Some prefer a light and airy chocolate cake. Some make their cakes from a boxed cake mix while others insist on cakes only made from scratch. One friend always put a spoonful of mayo in her chocolate cake batter, claiming it gave the cake a smoother texture. Even though I was grossed out when I first heard this (I don't like mayo) it makes sense - I assume the oil in mayo is somewhat like using oil to make a chiffon cake.
However you like your chocolate cake (less cake and more icing, perhaps) today's the day to celebrate the indulgence that is chocolate cake.
