My parents just got back from 5 weeks in Bhutan (my dad was doing doctor stuff and my mom was teaching 5th grade English), it was their 33rd wedding anniversary, AND Ellie turned 9 months old.
Cake was definitely in order.
My parents both love chocolate and malt, so it was a natural choice. My sister baked the cake, I made the frosting, and we all ate big slices (except Ellie). The cake itself is incredibly chocolatey and moist, and the frosting is very rich. No matter what you’re celebrating, this is a great cake for it.
