There’s one thing particular a couple of selfmade chocolate cake. Certain, cardboard-encased grocery store sheet muffins have their nostalgia, and bakery muffins with their intricate piping are lovely. However do they fragrance your house with the aroma of cocoa and butter? Do they allow you to sneak swoops of icing when you’re ready for the cake to sit back on the cooling rack? Do they elicit the identical oohs and aahs (and sense of self-satisfaction) once you carry it out to your company? Not fairly.
