let them eat cake

i hope everyone had a great weekend. i know i sure did! my friend maren turned 40 on saturday and had a huge partay. before her party she asked if she could borrow some recipes because there were going to be vegans at the party besides me. i got SO excited! i thought it was awesome of her to make a special vegan cake--i mean, it's HER birthday and she wanted to make something for others? then again, that's maren in a nutshell: she's always doing nice things for other people. i lent her VWAV and pictured above and below is the chocolate raspberry blackout cake. holy shit it was divine.
i mean it was one of those cakes where you wish the piece you were eating never would end. i'm a big girl and realize that all things do have to be over sooner or later and i need to deal with it. thanks maren for sharing your special day with all of us!
