A Great Read

For those of you unfamiliar with Gesine Bullock-Prado, she is Sandra Bullock's sister.  She was also her Production Assistant in Hollywood, until she decided to move to Vermont and start up her own bakery.  Her book,My Life from Scratch, A Sweet Journey of Starting Over One day at a Time, chronicles her transition from high-powered Hollywood movie life to baking and the management of her own bakery.
 
Formerly titledSecret Confections of a Master Baker( I LOVE this title), Gesine takes you through all her trials and tribulations of starting up a bakery, many to which I can completely relate.

Fat Chocolate Cakes

You have GOT to try these!  I set out one day to add more chocolate to the lineup and this definitely hit the mark.  I'm using 4" springform pans and making outrageously moist little chocolate cakes in one layer.  I split them after they cool and fill each one with a HUGE scoop of freshly made chocolate buttercream frosting.  After replacing the top half and pressing down slightly to make the frosting ooze out the sides a bit, I heat the remaining frosting to glaze consistency and pour it over the top so it drips down the sides.
