Chocolate Whisky Bundt Cake with PB Glaze and Chocolate-Covered Potato Chips

Whew. What a title, right?!

I made this cake for my old Roomz and another good friend from law school after they reminded me that it had been a really long time since they had eaten anything “Kate baked.” So, like, maybe I went overboard trying to impress them is what I’m trying to say…

You spend three years seeing a person every day and sharing fridge space and borrowing eggs and telling each other to “PLEASE EAT SOME OF THOSE COOKIES SO I DON’T EAT THREE DOZEN BY MYSELF.” And then, one day, you stop doing that. And suddenly, it’s been six months since your old Roomz has eaten anything you’ve baked.

Ugh, change. Amirite?!

And now here we are.  In February.  I can count on NO hands the number of posts I’ve written since December.  Because it’s zero.  And because I’m the worst. (more…)
