I think I am a pretty good cook. I am able to follow a recipe, I am getting a feel for when I can make substitutes and when I shouldn’t. That said, I am a downright terrible baker. Horrible. Especially when it comes to chocolate cake. For some reason I can never get a chocolate cake to turn out right. Today I attempted this cake and I really out did myself. Horrible, terrible mess. I managed to salvage it, but it is still not something I want to show off. I hope it at least tastes good. I guess I should stick to pies and cookies. They are much harder to screw up.
