About a year ago I attempted to make fudge from this same cookbook and I had the worst luck with it. The fudge was completely…well, nothing. It wasn’t edible, fudgelike, or anything salvageable. It was one of the biggest fails I have had in a long time. And particularly disheartening when your blog name is Fudging Ahead. Oh well. I decided to give it one more go and figured if it didn’t work, then I would make a different chocolate frosting instead.
In case you’re wondering about the size of this cake and the shape, I made it for the Fudgelet’s half birthday. He liked it…but said he wants his next cake to be a sheet cake because he didn’t like having frosting inside the cake…I have no words.
