Happy Birthday, Audrey Hepburn!
“Let's face it, a nice creamy chocolate cake does a lot for a lot of people; it does for me.” – Audrey Hepburn
We couldn’t have said it better than that. The beautiful actress-turned-philanthropist recognized the power of dessert, and we love her for it. And since Audrey was one Fair Lady and today is her birthday, we simply had to dedicate a post to chocolate cake.
Just like the Breakfast at Tiffany’s star, chocolate cake is a true classic that everyone can appreciate. There’s nothing quite like a slice of rich, velvety cake frosted to perfection. Truth be told, the right recipe can turn an ordinary night into a fabulous one.
We’ve put together a list of some of our very best recipes that would be Audrey-approved. Face it: there are far worse (and few better) things in life than treating yourself to a slice of chocolate cake.
Pictured above: The Sweet and Salty Cake is an indulgent but sophisticated adult sweet: The perfectly salted caramel contrasts beautifully with the rich chocolate layers, giving the cake balance and character.
