I've been absent, and for this I apologize. And, I have to admit, I've been cheating. Yes, I have two loves in this life. One of them is of course cheese. The other is chocolate.
A few weeks ago an email was sent out at working asking for layer cakes to decorate tables at an auction. Never being one to pass up the chance to show off my baking skills, I volunteered. And baked this beauty. I was then approached by a colleague, who asked me if I would bake one for her. And get this - she PAID me! So, I did.
The cheese will be back soon. I'm slowly coming out of the chocolate-induced diabetic coma.
