My friend Todd recently celebrated his 30th (ahem) birthday, and so, to celebrate, über chefs Nory (R) and Zephyr (L) put together a gorgeous, sky-high chocolate cake -- covered with nuts and topped with spikes of brown spun sugar -- and served it last night to a very appreciative group of friends.
As you can see in the picture above, Nory is a singularly focused cook, and Zephyr is a helpful teammate as they make chocolate history together.
The final wedge stood valiantly, but I suspect did not last 24 hours...nor should it have. Great cakes are made to be eaten! Thanks for this delicious treat, Nory and Zephyr!
