Before I tell about the story of the cake, let me just tell you that Aunt Minty is not really a blood aunt. I just call her Aunt Minty because she loves it when everyone calls her that. And I won’t sacrifice my piece of her delicious cake just because she was displeased that I didn’t call her Aunt. Aunt Minty, by the way, is one of my mom’s friends who loved to bring us cakes whenever she visited. I happened to visit my parents when she was there so I was one of the lucky ones who got to taste her newest cake.
It’s a chocolate cake that was surrounded with shards of chocolate. I learned that those chocolates surrounding the cake was one of my favorite childhood chocolates—Milky Way! I loved Milky way so much when I was in middle school. The chewy yet soft filling that didn’t get stuck in the teeth unlike the others melted in my mouth. That was something heavenly for a child who loved her sweets. I didn’t get to ask Aunt Minty about the recipe, but I did find a similar one that offers the same delicious taste. You might want to check out this recipe that I will be posting on the next page.
