Note to myself for all future cake barring: unless impossible to avoid, do not piggyback cake baring onto other events. You will lose all of your cake.

This last weekend, my friends were having a going away party at Golden Road Brewing in Atwater Village, so I decided I should just take the cake there. I made an Almond Flour Chocolate Cake as a going away present for my friends, and I made a second one for me to hold. The problem was that I couldn’t stop offering the cake that I had made specifically to offer strangers to all the people I already knew at the bar.

It is a hard, hard thing for me to hold a baked good and not give pieces away. That’s just bad manners.

So even though I had zero cake left after 10 minutes at the party, we had a wonderful time with our friends who are moving away, and I learned a valuable lesson for all future experiments.

Stop being so gosh darn generous.

*This week’s cake recipe was found in a Trader Joe’s panic after I had spent way too much time at Marshall’s on Saturday, and knew I needed something fast and easy. The cake turned out to be not as moist as I would have liked– I did substitute a LOT of cocoa powder for dark chocolate when I decided to make two cakes… You can find it here: Deep Dark Moist Almond Flour Chocolate Cake. It’s also gluten free.
