So today was the first time that I have baked something in so long. I literally cannot remember the last time! So my boyfriend posted a chocolate cake on his tumblr about a week ago and it looked so good so obviously because it was chocolate, I had to make it! It's called the Sachertorte, and I followed the recipe exactly until it called for an apricot glaze and in the middle of fall, there aren't too many apricots growing! So I skipped that step and I think the cake came out pretty good. I have yet to try a piece since it's really late and I was too lazy to cut a slice, but I will tomorrow! Also, this cake took quite a while. I started at around 5 p.m. and I didn't get done until exactly 8:30 p.m. The reward is great though!… well it looks great so far!

This is the final result, chilling in the refrigerator so the chocolate layer on top sets.
I also changed the name of this blog to La Brune Lavande, french for Lavender Brunette.

I didn't want to make another post about how the cake turned out because I want to do another post today! It was a little dry and not very chocolaty, but it was very good! I recommend doing the apricot glaze or putting whipped cream on the top when you're going to eat it :)

Oh and the recipe I used was one that I found on and the website is here!
Happy baking!
