This weekend I didn’t cook anything.
OK that’s a lie. I did help making 20 chocolate cakes using this recipe.
In case you were wondering, 20 chocolate cakes is a lot of cakes to make. I didn’t think it would be that tiring, but let me promise you this: when you are making 4 cakes at a time and have to hand-stir in 15 eggs one at a time there is energy being spent. Trust me.
You know, nothing a little entire bag of Doritos couldn’t handle, but still. The three of us were exhausted and I believe (believe it or not) that the words, “I never want to eat chocolate again” came out of each one of our mouths at least once during the day.
I know. I take it back. But maybe in a week…
So what were we making 20 cakes for? Well, Bekah is getting married in 2 weeks and since they didn’t want a traditional wedding cake she decided to make her own cakes for each reception table (these particular cakes freeze REALLY well – promise we’ve tested it!). Since I like to bake I was totally on board with helping. Amy is a great friend and helped too. Three people making 20 cakes does 3 very tired friends make!
- 26 bars of chocolate
- 8 pounds of butter
- 75 eggs
- 20 cups of sugar
- 15 Tbsp of flour
These cakes are super healthy. Totally healthy.
