Death by Chocolate; a birthday cake for a literary magazine

On December 6, 2011, literary magazine Pure Slush turned one, and celebrated with a cake party. Also in early December, Pure Slush published my creepy, creative non-fiction essay, Days Like This, so I celebrated both events by baking a cake for their party. The party was virtual, but the cake was real. They’ve posted my photo and the recipe. Warning: this cake is only for diehard chocolate fans. Very, very serious chocolate fans. Not for the faint of heart. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Now go try the recipe, and wish Pure Slush a happy birthday!
