However, I did try to make a Black Forest Gateau inspired by the first episode of "The Great British Baking Show" that aired last Friday night. The laid-back vibes from the contestants on the show is so pleasant, but their creations are incredible -- they do amazing things in that big tent on PBS. I have never developed good cake-baking skills, so I was really pleased that my cake was symmetrical and not totally ugly!
Devils Food Cake from the Joy of Cooking App.

We shared it with neighbors at a potluck this evening.
The potluck broke up so we could all go to Burns Park where there are unauthorized fireworks. I hear them starting now.
