After the confusion…

…we had a nice little birthday party for Bruce’s mom, with some healthy hummus to start, and an amazing chocolate hazelnut birthday cake to finish. The course of polenta with sausage, shrimp and mushroom ragu, was pretty darn tasty too. Am I lucky or what? My husband loves to cook when he is taking 3 months off from catching lobsters!

This may be Bruce’s best cake yet. Chocolate cake, chocolate mousse filling, and chocolate hazelnut buttercream frosting.

      Susan, it’s in the February issue of Food and Wine magazine. page 59. It was a whole article about layer cakes and various fillings and frostings. Sort of a mix and match. It was the first time he made it.
