Chocolate cake

Well I always have a hard time saying something is "The
Best" in its category; thus I post on this board very
rarely. But I'll just say this about the chocolate cake
at Ceci Cela bakery, Spring and Mulberry: It defines,
in my mind, exactly what a chocolate cake should be.

It is a two layer cake, with some type of mousse or
chocolate cream in between the layers. Covering the
cake is an extremely rich ganache; in a circle around
the top of the cake are 12 kiss-shaped drops of dark
chocolate; and a very fine dusting of cocoa powder
covers the top.

I'm sure there is a better chocolate cake somewhere in
the world; but somehow I can't imagine it. Also -- Ceci
Cela has excellent fruit tarts of all descriptions. If
you are in the neighborhood with a sweet tooth, try out
their Financier -- it is like a tart, but the base is
more muffiny.
