This month brings another delicious recipe from my Year of Chocolate challenge. While Mexican Chocolate Brownie Sundaes are my go-to comfort food, this next dish is my ultimate weakness — Black-and-White Layer Cake. Since the start of this chocolate journey, I’ve been waiting in anticipation to make this delectable dish. The reason being? White chocolate, plain and simple. White chocolate is my Kryptonite, but mostly in a good way. Any time I see something containing white chocolate, I have to try it. Whether it be in a yummy Starbucks drink, covered over a cake pop or transformed into mouth-watering fudge, I have a hard time holding back my love obsession for it. While this dessert actually fell under the April selection, I decided to move it back a few months and make it the feature dish of mine and Jacob’s recent engagement party. And I’m glad I did. The cake was a huge hit with all our friends and family, with most comments being, “You made this from scratch?!” Majority rules in the case of this cake — it’s pretty much the best thing ever.
