In honor of our silver wedding anniversary, both of our married children arranged to move back in with the rest of the brood, lock stock and grandkids for the weekend. Yes, yes, I know that all the extra cooking fell on me, but my family is aware that I don't mind in the slightest and that having everybody around the same hearth so to speak, would make for the most perfect anniversary ever.
Among other things on the celebratory menu was this chocoholic's delight cake (chocolate cake, with chocolate frosting, topped with chocolate glaze and decorated with chocolate leaves). The chocolate leaves and marzipan flowers are quite elegant looking and are not nearly as hard to make as they look.
