Best Chocolate Cake Ever!

My life is complete. . . I have tasted the best chocolate cake in the whole entire world! Well, maybe that's a little over dramatic, but that was how I felt when I had my first bite of this dessert!

From March 12 - 17 I was in Salt Lake City, Utah for the American College Dance Festival. I got to take some amazing dance classes such as Afro-Carribbean, Advanced Modern, Experiential Anatomy, Contemporary African, and Improvisation. I also performed in a piece that was adjudicated and a piece I choreographed was performed at an informal concert. All in all, it was an amazing experience!

One evening our whole group went to eat at a place called Desert Edge, which is located in Trolley Square for anyone who knows the SLC area. The food everyone ordered was pretty tasty, but then came my dessert - Chocolate Decadence - A rich, flourless chocolate cake covered in a bittersweet chocolate glaze with toasted almonds on a chocolate crumb crust. . .

This cake was utterly divine! Under the shavings of white and dark chocolate was the top of the cake; a crisp, thin layer that almost immediately melted in your mouth. The cake itself was hardly like a cake at all, but more like a chocolate truffle that was smooth and luxurious. It was bold, rich, sweet, incredible! I cannot say enough about how wonderful this cake was. Just to give you a better idea of it's caliber, after the first bite I realized I needed to savor it for as long as possible. I therefore took two bites initially, took another three bites later that night, and finished the rest the following evening. I normally never have this great of self control, but I knew that this dessert was worth it! I had to enjoy it for as long as possible, knowing my chances of ever having it again are slim.

I rate this dessert a 10 out of 10!!! If you ever visit Salt Lake City, go find this restaurant and try this dessert. . . believe me, it is worth your while! Oh, and bring me back a piece, would you? :-)
