"Be Mine" Chocolate Cake by Jessica Flannery

Roanoke, VA, US


FAVE MEMORY: One of my favorite things about my husband is the joy he gets from lavishing love on our little family. A few years ago he surprised me with a 3-layer chocolate cake for Valentine's day. It was not the most refined-looking cake and my kitchen was never the same after that day (despite the fact that I'm a messy cook myself!), but every bit of cake batter we cleaned up just reminded me how hard he'd worked on such a sweet, extravagant surprise.
