playing tourist in Leavenworth, doing the whole listening to the accordion players in their lederhosen (fun fact: my sister, best friend, and I used to dance around in our German getup and were extras in a german Christmas movie!), picking out taffy flavors with Josiah, my youngest brother- who looks like a beautiful six foot three man at only fifteen, and finding a steal on some local ceramics, we headed back for dinner and dessert!
Well, now that you have been convinced by my wheat-and-dairy-regular-sugar-eating grandma that you should eat this super moist gluten free cake, all that’s left say is, “I hope you top this blackout chocolate cake with more chocolate!”.
