150-Hour Chocolate Cake
A good chocolate cake shouldn't need this long, but I enjoy taking my time. This one has a rich chocolate mousse, brown butter espresso, infused honey bourbon, hot chocolate cake soak, and about 5 million bars of chocolate.

    Oh my! This was wonderful. But all the time I kept thinking his friends arriving and saying -Oh, no thanks, I´m on a keto diet, or simply cancelling and not showing up. Then I began to imagine them eating the cake without paying attention, and of course the idea of all of it falling to the floor came to me too. Am I getting way to pessimist in life. Anyway, thank you, I really loved this, you are sweet Alvin.
