It got to hot to bake anything. Maybe during the night.

Tonight I'm baking a two-layer Devil's Food Cake with dark chocolate ganache from Chocolatier for my husband's birthday tomorrow.

That is my very favorite cake. My other favorite dessert is lemon meringue pie which is cooling as we speak. If I had to choose between the chocolate cake and the pie well, I don't think I could but since cake is so much easier to make than pie I only get the pie a couple of times a year. (Yes I know I can buy them but if they aren't home made they just taste like wallpaper paste to me. Totally not worth the expenditure in dollars or calories.)

Those are my 2 favs also. I feel the same way about store bought LMP!! There is nothing like a nice tart made from scratch Lemon meringue pie. I hate the sickening sweet pie from the store.
