Just ate my Chicago Diner cake. So. Delicious. I actually split it with my mom (though my slice was a wee bit bigger!) but I definitely could have eaten a whole slice by myself...I just would have felt a lot more guilty afterwards!
The cake had a rich, authentic chocolate flavor. The chocolate frosting/ganache/whatever! between the cake layers was the perfect ratio to the cake. Additionally, the texture was heavenly--almost like fudge! The pale chocolate icing on the side and perimeter of the cake top was divine too--kind of salty, which really complimented the chocolate, with a hint of coffee. Lastly, there was a faint dusting of chocolate cookie-like crumbs on the side of the cake. Normally I'm not a big cookie-crumbs-on-cake type of gal, but there was just enough on this cake and it truly made the cake's flavors and textures pop.
I cannot wait to return to Ann Arbor and get another slice of cake!
