Better than {Some} Sex Cake

Is there really a cake that could be better than SEX?  I ask myself. 

This is the cake that I served my DnD buddies when they came over Friday night.  I asked them, "Well, what's the verdict?  Is it better than SEX?".

As you can imagine this conversation lasted quite a while.  There was much contempla-tion, argumen-tation and consumption-tation.

For some of us who like to indulge it took three pieces to come to a decision.  There were the quickie decision makers who decided within minutes.  And there were those who held out and made a decision after about a half hour or so.

It was decided that this cake is better than SOME SEX.  "It all depends on the partner" was the final verdict.

The discussion continued days after the DnD boys left with my hubby and I finding ourselves bonding around the kitchen island in the middle of the night eating cake.

I say eating but that doesn't even begin to describe the way the hubby indulges.  Whipped cream is all over his mouth and he has this huge grin on his face while he's stuffing the cake in to his mouth.  He lets me know that this cake will bring out anyone's O face.

"You should put that on your blog when you blog about this cake!".  Oh, don't worry honey, I will!  I did.

Try for yourself and let me know the verdict!
