Flourless Chocolate Cake I
This is a great recipe! I followed the directions exactly with no problems. I used 60% Ghirardelli chips- made for a very rich and delicious torte. I felt the texture was like a silky smooth truffle. I topped mine with homemade whipped cream and fresh strawberries. I think adding something with some sweetness helps balance out the richness from the chocolate. Very delicious!

Lemon Cake with Lemon Filling and Lemon Butter Frosting
I just made this cake had a great time, but my husband and I really didn't enjoy the flavors very well. I was pretty let down because it looked beautiful and I was really in the mood for lemon. I didn't think the curd was sweet enough and I really didn't like the flavor of the vanilla in the cake. I wish I had ommitted that and added lemon juice instead. I had plenty of icing and curd though, I just wish it all tasted a little better.
