From Miss Ginsu, who made a bacon-topped chocolate cake:
Some approached cautiously, but everyone who tried the chocolate bacon cake proclaimed enjoyment. Some went back for seconds. In the end, not a single slice went unclaimed. The boss man was pleased, and the whole thing was an enormous success. I was left wondering why bacon bits aren't a standard topping for cakes in the same way they are for salads, casseroles and omelettes.
I agree. And why the hell didn't I think of this? Maybe because I don't eat much chocolate cake. In any case, I approve wholeheartedly.
