Chocolate & Passion Fruit Truffle Cake


Chocolate & Passion Fruit Truffle Cake
Good morning and Happy Valentine's Day!  Today I'm posting over at my friend Hillary's blog, Marche Dimanche.  I met Hillary over the summer at TECHmunch, a food blogging conference, and we hit it off right away.  We share a love of all things sweet and I am honored she asked me to guest post.
Aside from being an avid dessert lover, Hillary is a food writer.  She has lived in England, then Paris, and the South of France for many years.  Hillary has spent years dining in the finest restaurants throughout Europe, so let's just say she knows good food!  Keeping in mind Hillary's love of good chocolate, and today being Valentine's Day, I made my Chocolate and Passion Fruit Truffle Cake to share with all of you.  Whether you're a fan of cupid or not, I think we are all fans of a good chocolate dessert!  So go say hello to Hillary and stay for a piece of cake!

  5. Happy Valentine's Day Meghan! Thank you so much for the gift of your beautiful cake and post on Valentine's Day. Let's make it an annual tradition! I also want to send you an article I saw that says if you eat chocolate cake every morning for breakfast you can lose weight. How great is that? Big hug and thank you again for the outstanding guest blog post. Have a great one!
