Death by Chocolate meets death before the party

Sad news. There'll be no chocolate and calories from me.

The party hostess has changed the plan from potluck to five-course sit-down dinner, where guests are requested to bring only a beverage.

Alas, that didn't stop me from looking … dreamingimaginingimagining that which might have been … imagining when the hell I can derive an excuse to bake up one of these beauties …

I'd narrowed down the party possibilities to these three options from Godiva's site:

Chocolate Indulgence: a simple dense chocolate torte with an inviting spring look. (note: the spring for which we here in the Pacific Northwest are still waiting …)

Or:

Scary Monster Chocolate Cake

Plenty of chocolate. That appeals. Plenty of steps and time required. That appeals.  A good candidate.

Or:

Milk Chocolate Mousse Cake:

And we have a winner!

With a chocolate genoise, milk chocolate mousse,  dark chocolate ganache and raspberry sauce, it fits the bill in challenge/difficulty of preparation, textures and flavors.

Alas and sigh, still only eye candy …
