I baked Quick Chocolate Cake TNT, but I had an oops and put 3/4 cup cocoa instead of 1/4 cup.

It's kinda dry, but not excessively chocolatey.

DH was waiting for me to try it. "Taxlady will throw herself on the chocolate to protect Stirling."

thanks simonbaker, i certainly hope so. these came out more defined than most of these special pans do. got ten big bugs and ten cupcakes. will frost tomorrow. they are chocolate so i think less rather than more frosting to keep the designs clear.

The egg whites are finally done curing so I'm making macarons all this week! Started off with foie gras macarons~ foie gras and strawberry jam sandwiched with pistachio macarons.

i made a stiff crisco butter flavor frosting. colored small amounts. it was stiff enough that i used my finger and toothpicks only. i frost the designs on the different bugs. spot on beetle and lines on snails and so on. did use some sprinkles. they are really cut. i call them a success. we will see what the kids think.
