The Perfect Cake

I sent this to the Red-Haired Boy with a note that I’d found him the perfect birthday cake.  He responded, “I know this is a terrible time to tell you, but I’ve been lying all along about my birthday.  It’s really tomorrow.”

Personally, I don’t think this sounds bad.  Itis almost a requirement that you double the salt in most chocolate cake recipes (I got this idea from lizmosphere the week of her wedding – she is the only person I know besides me who actually had a tasty wedding cake, in fact, hers was better than mine), so why wouldn’t you want to top the cake with salty, crunchy bacon, too?  My only quibble is that I think the coffee in the frosting is unnecessary, unless you are going for that first-thing-in-the-morning “smell of bacon frying and coffee brewing” thang.
