The icing on the cake...

I made two "I'd Marry you for this" cakes.  One for our auction winner, and one for my friend who recently gave birth to a healthy baby boy after 8 weeks of grueling bed rest.  Yes, if you get married or go on bed rest around here, you get a cake.  Them's the rules.

I made the chocolate truffle frosting in my new Calphalon pots.  Lest you be thinking, "Calphalon?  Meghan shelled out for CALPHALON?" No, I did not.  I was fortunate enough to win the 10 piece set in a giveaway sponsored by Calphalon and BigTent.  I say fortunate enough because I LOVE them.  And I love, love, love, LOVE free stuff.  But more on that another time, since this post is about cake.

If you're thinking you can't live without one of these cakes, but you aren't willing to go on bed rest, get married, or make a honkin' big donation to the March for Babies, you can find most of the recipes in the Joy Troupe Cook Book.

Here are the finished cake photos, in all their chocolate chunk brownie layer, cocoa icing cream filling, chocolate truffle frosted glory:
