I spent a good part of the day making a cake from a recipe I found almost 30 years ago in a magazine. I made it once when I was in my twenties. Chocolate Creole Cake. I had a taste for a good cake. I made 2 square cakes with chocolate squares, lots of butter and sour milk. Then made a layer with cooked condensed milk, chopped dates, pecans and raisins. I whipped cream for another layer. Finally I made a frosting with chocolate chips and sour cream. The nasturtiums are actually crimson color and are quite tasty. They cover up any imperfections in my frosting technique. Many pans and bowls later I had a cake ready for a wonderful wine tasting party at Jays house. I am satisfied!
