It Should Be Illegal: Eric's Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Bacon Cake
Eric made a cake. Eric doesn't make a cake for everyone. He makes cake when he's inspired to do so, and because of this, his cakes are amazing. He made a monster cake for our son's 4th birthday that was...HUGE and was of course a monster. Then there was his famous (infamous?) She-Cake.
But when he came out with this cake, covered in bacon, I knew to let go of logic and dive in.
It should be illegal. It should have heart warnings stuck in it like little country of origin flags. It should go in a cookbook.
Decadent chocolate cake covered in a rich peanut butter cream frosting, covered in crispy bacon. Oh. My. God.
It was so rich I said halfway through that I really should stop. "I'm going to be sick," I said. I finished it. Felt a little sick, but a bit of milk and rest stabled me out just fine.
Try this at home. I dare ya.
